1. Teaming up again with Global Creatures*, Spinifex created a dramatic animated stage backdrop for this ambitious theatrical interpretation of the hit DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon. The stage floor, the size of a football field, and the rear wall, the size of 9 cinema screens, combine into a seamless projection canvas, evoking the moody landscapes that carry Hiccup and Toothless through their epic adventure.

    Spinifex produced over 2 hours of digital content, which is tightly choreographed to the performances of the actors and the 25 life-like animatronic models, suggesting speed and movement as they fly, explosions and battle as they fight.

    “The show heralds the creation of a new genre, combining elements of cinema and theatre in a really magical and immersive experience. For the digital media producer it raised the challenges of not only designing and creating imaginary environments, but doing it so they integrate with live performers and massive animatronic creatures.” Anthony Hickson, Producer, Spinifex.

    *After a successful collaboration on the Walking With Dinosaurs Show.

  4. O (Omicron)
    A permanent installation directed by Romain Tardy & Thomas Vaquié
    Hala Stulecia, Wroclaw, Poland.

    -> Be sure to watch the making of the piece here: vimeo.com/41475403

    _________________________

    When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.

    The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.

    Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
    By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.
