2018 marked the first year that Louisiana projection mapping artists were commissioned to create show content, with each artist team being given 1 of 4 seasons around which to build out a ~2 minute projection mapped piece of video content.
Our concept, a short film entitled “As it Fades”, explored the 2018 LUNA Fest show theme, ”Through Time”, by using Fall as a metaphor to observe and examine the passing of time. The storyline acknowledges the chaos in our past, and offers a hopeful crescendo that depicts the empowerment of humanity, despite the chaos in our midst even today.
Conceptualized and produced on a tight 8 week timeline, we had an incredible time creating this piece and are incredibly grateful to Lindsay Glatz at arts council new orleans for having us along for the ride.
