In December 2018, we were honored to premiere a short film commissioned by The Arts Council New Orleans for their annual festival of light, LUNA Fête. Luna is one of the largest annual light festivals in the country, and 2018 was a standout year.
2018 marked the first year that Louisiana projection mapping artists were commissioned to create show content, with each artist team being given 1 of 4 seasons around which to build out a ~2 minute projection mapped piece of video content. The Launch Media team was given the season of Fall, and we decided a conceptual representation was the direction we wanted to take. We LOVE an open ended client brief, and the team at the Arts Council left it completely wide open for us to take it where we wanted to.
Our concept, a short film entitled “As it Fades”, explored the 2018 LUNA Fest show theme, ”Through Time”, by using Fall, and seasons in general, as a metaphor to observe and examine the passing of time. The storyline acknowledges the chaos in our past, and offers a hopeful crescendo that depicts the empowerment of humanity, despite the chaos in our midst even today.
Conceptualized and produced on a tight 8 week timeline, we had an incredible time creating this piece and are incredibly grateful to Lindsay Glatz at Arts Council New Orleans for having us along for the ride.
