Most of our film projects are for viewing on traditional monitors and televisions, but sometimes we get the opportunity to do something a little less ordinary.
Earlier this spring, we were commissioned by Interactive Ontario and the City of Toronto to produce a video as part of an exhibit space inside City Hall’s ground floor rotunda during the 2015 Pan Am & Para Pan Am Games. They wanted a video component to the exhibit that showcases Toronto as a great place to live, work and play.
We love new challenges, and were pretty stoked to tackle a 320° video projection. It wasn’t our first cylindrical video display, but working in a space where nothing could be moved, with ever-changing ambient light, was new. We brought in SenovvA Canada to manage all the technical aspects of the projection.
The Toronto House Digital Exhibit captures 24 hours in the life of Toronto and expresses the spirit of the city as it progresses through the course of a day. Weaving together imagery from Toronto’s incredibly diverse neighbourhoods, architecture, green space, culture and residents, Toronto House immerses the viewer in a personal and layered city beyond traditional visuals. The finished installation has been sourced from 4000 clips, incorporating over 100 vantage points across a geographically and culturally big city.
Today we are sharing our first of four Silverpoint 2:20 vlogs for a behind-the-scenes look at this wonderful project. Check back this week on our Vimeo channel as we share further BTS moments with our location manager, our cinematographer, and the co-director of the project.
The Toronto House exhibit runs daily from 12PM to 8PM, until August 15, 2015, inside Toronto City Hall at 100 Queen Street West. It is free and accessible.0
