Having applied as an independent artist, was granted TIFF Bell Lightbox’s largest Cinema for Nuit Blanche 2011, where I co-curated and acted as lead producer on the Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra, an all-night non-stop 12hr concert comprised of 16 bands enjoyed by thousands of dancing visitors as a mix of live music and giant-screen video games came together on stage.
Nuit-Blanche 2011: The Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra!
ENDLESS FILMS provided intense levels of video support, directing the filming and processing over a terabyte of HD footage all in one night.
Interactive artist and game designer Tino Kapataneas created our awesome isometric pixel art of TIFF’s building, “the Lightbox” that you see above here, it was also used in the trailer.
Official Trailer by Pyramid Attack!
Our trailer was conceived and animated by super fresh Toronto-based animation wizards PYRAMID ATTACK – thanks again Sean and Arv!
Custom Chiptunes Instruments!
Co-conspirator and not-evil genius Jonathan custom-designed these electronic noise makers. A limited edition run of 150 were made and handed out to the first several rows of the audience for the special midnight performance from the Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra.
MAKING OF INSTRUMENTS VIDEO: A handy video-recipe courtesy of the TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Content Capture Department on what it takes to make a rockin’ Nuit Blanche project. Featuring the music of Jeff The World and the busy hands of Team TIFF Nexus, Ryerson Students and the fine folks of Site 3 coLaboratory.
