Illuminart at Unley Gourmet Gala

Feb 2, 2015

We were asked if we could do some small projections during Unley Gourmet Gala (an annual outdoor event showcasing some of South Australia’s finest local food, wine, fashion, music and entertainment). Our team created ambient projection installations for two sites:  the King William Road site featured animation by Luku Kukuku and Zero, and Penny Campton light-painted live in the Kids Zone. These additions to the festival added a playful touch and helped bring the street to life after dusk. The Gala, managed by Keito events, was held on King William Road Unley on 20th January 2015.

One of Adelaide’s most prestigious events, the annual Unley Gourmet Gala is an exciting outdoor gourmet experience showcasing some of South Australia’s finest local food, wine, fashion, music and entertainment.

Look for ambient projection and light painting in two sites along the strip from dusk until 10pm.

Flinders Flicks gets a new lease of life

Jun 6, 2014

More than six years have passed since a small group of Quorn locals set up Flinders Flicks. Monthly double features were screened at the local Guide Hall, as well as a few other venues such as the Quorn Caravan Park, until other commitments got in the way and FF went in to hiatus in 2011.

Those evenings have been sadly missed by its small bunch of devotees, but thanks to a new partnership with Emily’s Bistro, Flinders Flicks will be running again very soon.
