They say the sequel is never better than the original. For Big Gigantic's RowdyTown II, they were wrong. 6,400 ft above sea level, 10,000 screaming fans and 280,000 lumens equaled the biggest and brightest projection mapping production Red Rocks and Colorado has ever seen. With Ghost Pixel at the controls, a custom workflow that pumped out over one hundred unique visuals engulfed the 100 ft monolith rock walls. The 3D mapped animations were designed in collaboration with Big Gigantic and their lighting director to visually compliment the custom stage production. What resulted was an array Colorado themed images, dinosaurs, dollar bills, crumbling rock and cats shooting lasers from their eyes...Yes, cats with laser eyes. The night ended with an unexpected encore that blacked out Red Rocks, revealing a chromadepth 3D Ghost Pixel finale leading into a brand new Big Gigantic song that rocked Morrison, Colorado. Thanks to the fans and to everyone who helped and supported this project putting year two of RowdyTown in the history books!
