Behind the Scenes: Sydney Opera House “Lighting the Sails”

Matt Pyke and the Universal Everything crew gather 20 animation studios from around the planet to collaborate on 31 spirited living murals commissioned by, and projected onto, Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House for the VIVID 2015 festival.

From Universal Everything: “Embracing emerging technologies, Universal Everything’s process always starts from drawing. The hand drawn cell animation techniques seen in this film are akin to the early pioneers of animation Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney.

“Due to the use of traditional animation techniques, this film could have existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist – bringing our influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this iconic building.”
