Lord Mayor’s Business Awards 2010

Having supplied content and technical direction for the 2008-09 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards, 2010 was chance to try something different.  In a collaboration with Loud Events and IVMotion we decided to execute one of the first projection-mapped awards ceremonies in the country.  The concept was to build 3-dimensional set pieces of key buildings in the Brisbane CBD, and bring them to life on stage using geometrically precise High Definition projections.  To take the concept a step further, we also decided to synchronise animations on the buildings to the graphics packages for each award category.  In addition, Graetzmedia produced a documentary opening piece featuring past winners and luminaries from the Brisbane business community – which once again was synchronised with animations on the set pieces simulating the construction of the Brisbane skyline.

Here’s a short look at the night and the preparation involved:

Here’s the documentary intro we produced featuring former Lord Mayor Campbell Newman, past LMBA winners & key Brisbane business leaders:
