To celebrate Wellington being New Zealand's Capital for 150 years we created a nine minute show which we projected onto Parliament building. The chapters of the media included:
An architectural, artistic and poetic introduction.
Telling the story of Maui pulling up the North Island.
A chronological history of Parliament in NZ.
A celebration of each of Wellington’s suburbs.
We had 4 months to concept, style develop, storyboard, then make all media before the live event. The show ran repeatedly over 7 nights, with the first show being accompanied by extensive live entertainment.
"The Capital 150th celebrations showed what a wonderful range of institutions and people we have in Wellington. My favourite part of the weekend was the Light and Sound show on the Parliament buildings. In a quirky but historically accurate way, designs, photographs, text and birthday balloons combined for a beautiful dynamic romp through 150 years of history. The crowds loved it." - Mayor Celia Wade-Brown
