Tribute to Leonardo da Vinci
Royal Caribbean - Anthem of the Seas
Since 2014, Moment Factory’s multimedia entertainment has been entertaining audiences on Royal Caribbean International (RCI)’s technology driven ship Quantum of the Seas. Following the success of this collaboration, Moment Factory was mandated to create a new show for RCI’s latest ship Anthem of the Seas. Spectra’s Cabaret.
Moment Factory was also mandated to create an assortment of digital vignettes integrating the latest technologies. These vignettes generate continuous entertainment for spectators in the Two70 lounge. The films are projected onto screens that slide down over the windows to form an ambient surface over 100 feet wide and 20 feet tall. Six mobile Roboscreens, each measuring over seven feet high, are controlled by powerful robotic arms to create additional platforms for projections.
The most stunning of these vignettes is the short film paying tribute to Leonardo da Vinci. More than just a film, it is a cinematic experience that plunges into da Vinci’s complex and visionary mind. It brings to life a conceptual invention that he was never able to achieve himself. Several centuries ahead of his time, he had envisioned a flying device. The film breathes life into this flying machine and helps bring da Vinci’s dream to completion while placing it in a modern context. The audience is invited aboard, ready to be transported on an epic journey. The voyage glides through 15th century Rome, drifting through some of da Vinci’s thoughts, inventions and drawings. Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man also comes to life as the sketch transforms into a male dancer gracefully performing with a Cyr wheel.
Troublemakers was mandated to compose the music, produce the sound design, organize and supervise the orchestral recording sessions.
