Hungarians won the International Video Mapping Competition – VIDEO
Szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu writes that the Hungarian Limelight video mapping circle of artists’ production won the iMapp Bucharest virtual 3D multimedia show last Saturday night. The video projections were screened on the second largest administrative building of the world in front of a large audience. The Hungarian production mesmerised everyone.
The four and a half minute productions of Hungarian, Romanian, Spanish, Russian, Montenegrin and Turkish visual artists were screened on the building of the Bucharest Palace of Parliament in front of more than 30 thousand spectators. The judges included the art directors of video mapping festivals of Prague, Geneva, Gent, Helsinki and Berlin.
“Video mapping uses a complex 3D image that brings the surface of the building to life by forms and colors, using each architectonic element in order to personalize and reshape the gigantic area of the construction. Thus, the “outline” of the building becomes the main protagonist of a dynamic show of sound, color, light, a true optical illusion” writes iMapp Bucharest on its website.
The Hungarian Limelight group’s Interconnection production impressed both the judges and the audience, thus winning both awards. The theme of this year’s festival was “dialogues”. The 3D motion pictures shot by the visual artists came to life on the 20 thousand m2 surface of the Bucharest Palace of Parliament. They used 104 high-performance projectors to enlighten the huge surface.
The festival organised by the Municipality of Bucharest was chosen as one of the world’s most important video mapping festivals by the Agerpres news agency.
