“Seattle Is My Home” wins three Telly awards

 I know they’re just chunks of pretty metal, but to be quite frank the Port of Seattle video was so much fun for us to create and we enjoyed showing off our amazing city in full summer swing that winning these prestigious awards just feels right. Here are the categories we won, Visual Effects, Live Events and Motivational.Come by our office some time and we can drink from the challis of victory and discuss your next project.

MO Completes Two Microsoft Projects at CES

2012 is off to a good start after completing two CES projects for Microsoft.  Using the presentation software WATCHOUT, Mind Opera worked with Seattle creative agency PBJS to create Steve Balmer’s keynote presentation along with a 60 foot video wall in their Experience Pavillion at the CES trade show.   Everyone we worked with on these projects were talented, professional, and courteous all the way across the board.  It was a pleasure to work with such good people. Read more about the projects on the Dataton website. http://tinyurl.com/85zem4r

AAPA Conference video for the Port of Seattle

Mind Opera created this video, “Seattle is my home” for the Port of Seattle, which was the host city for the Annual AAPA convention. Our plan for the video was to tip our hat to the Port’s 100th birthday at the beginning then slingshot the audience into modern day Seattle showing them the heart and soul of the city over one Seattle summer. This video only scratches the surface of our beautiful city and the people that live here, so there is still much to discover. If you haven’t been to Seattle, perhaps this will act as inspiration to make the trip.

There was a lot of great footage left on the cutting room floor and some of the time lapse is not on screen long enough to see the interesting patterns form. I intend to rectify that in the coming weeks by adding just the time lapse and tilt shift footage separately along with some more comments about my experience using the Canon 5D II.

I want to thank everyone who participated in creating this video.

Obscura Digital and the Guggenheim Museum showcased

I just can’t get enough of architectural video mapping.  This is a stunning project that wraps the Guggenheim Museum both inside and out in video.

TouchDesigner software for interactive content development

We used the TouchDesigner software from Derivative years ago to create visual filler for a live event.  It’s an easy to use tool that lets you create interesting content on the fly. Take a look at what people are doing with it today.

Mind Opera worked with our friends at PBJS to create a sophisticated look for the Gates Foundation keynote, Living Proof in Washington D.C.  The presentation incorporated mixed video, audio and graphics. By using WATCHOUT we knew we could
