What is He Building in There?

Projection Mapped Narrative at SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL


A veteran of the inaugural 2007 edition of New Frontier, Ricardo Rivera and Klip Collective returned to Sundance to transform the entire front of the New Frontier venue into a 3D projection-mapped parable, inspired by the Tom Waits song, "What is He Building in There"


Light Harvest was asked to help create some of the digital sets and props for this amusing spectacle.
