About the project

This colossal project for Creative Production Services and Crown Entertainment was staged as a lighting spectacle with festive animations projected onto giant baubles. The creative concept involved creating tiny worlds within Christmas baubles and displaying mechanised dioramas to the theme of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’. The project took three months to produce and called for a crack team of 3D designers and animators working all at once alongside illustrator Travis Price. The worlds within the baubles were inspired by wooden toys, wind-up dolls and old-school Christmas decorations. The projection was mapped within the Crown auditorium and huge suspended baubles would appear to open up magically every 15 minutes. Now that’s the spirit of Christmas.
