Snap! 2012 Kickoff: Building-sized 3-D Digital Projection

by patrick on April 16, 2012

This Thursday night, April 19, watch the downtown Kress Building morph, change and come alive right before your eyes. This spectacular event, produced by Snap! Orlando and hosted by Mayor Buddy Dyer, will dazzle the crowd with a larger-than-life projection mapping of dynamic 3-D animation and images from Snap!’s 2012 “Urban Wild” exhibition on the facade of the downtown Kress Building. This large scale 3D projection mapping is a FREE community event to kick off the Snap! 2012 Season.

The projection will be viewed from The Plaza property (130 S. Orange, Downtown Orlando 32801) and the surrounding portions of Orange Ave. will be closed during each showing to ensure safe viewing. Mayor Dyer will launch the event at 8:30 PM. and showings of the projection will run consecutively every half hour from 8:30 PM until MIDNIGHT.

In addition to hundreds of Orlando residents, this projection event will be attended by Orlando City Officials and 130 International Downtown Association delegates representing every major city in the U.S. and cities throughout Canada and Italy. This will be an evening for Orlando to truly shine, so come out and show your support.

This event also coincides with the opening of Snap!’s “Call for Entries” exhibit at City Arts Factory, (6 to 9 PM), during Downtown Arts District’s 3rd Thursday. So visit the gallery show, then stroll to the plaza for the projection and witness a VISUAL FEAST!

For this year’s projection we have partnered with Angel’s View, a creative production company from Canada, and they have truly pulled out of all the stops in creating a show that will amaze you.
See you all there, on APRIL 19th!
