Collaborating with over 20 different animation studios worldwide, Universal Everything has created a living mural on one of the world’s most iconic buildings, the Sydney Opera House. You may have seen projection mapping similar to this but UE’s approach is quite different, instead using hand drawn cell animation techniques similar to those of early pioneers of animation Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney.
The effect are transfixing and the work of the animators, folks like Drew Tyndell, Ori Toor, Masanobu Hiraoka, are phenomenal. The opera house is such an interesting canvas to work with and these artists have taken full advantage of the space.
