Watch Sydney Opera House Come Alive With Projection Mapping

By Casey Chan on at

The Sydney Opera House is one of the most iconic buildings there is in this world so it’s stunning to see it come alive as a canvas for artists to display their animation on. 20 different animation studios teamed up to transform the Sydney Opera House into a living mural that is just so enjoyable to watch.

The colours, the characters, the mini-stories, the art, you forget that you’re looking at a building and start to think that the building has a personality of its own.

Universal Everything, the folks behind the project, explain:

A global animation project by Universal Everything, collaborating with over 20 different animation studios worldwide to create a living mural on one of the world’s most iconic buildings.

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