Fresh snow piled on the mountains at the Thredbo ski resort in southeastern Australia, marking the start of the ski season. To kickoff opening weekend at the resort, Australian AV production company Be Productions and artist Scott Baker partnered with Epson to transform the snowy canvas into a stunning digital art piece.
Baker was commissioned by Thredbo village to project onto the lower half of Sundance Hill, located directly across from the village square. Having worked with Thredo village for years, Be Productions didn't hesitate to help when contacted by Baker to bring his vision to life. Setting the mood for opening weekend, they positioned Epson's Pro L25000U high brightness projector across from the village square to shoot winter-themed art on the hill's fresh bed of snow.
"Being able to project onto a white surface is fantastic and it just adds another element of just the way that digital art is going," said Marc McAvoy, director, Be Productions. "Scott put together some really cool visuals and he really made the place pop and come to life. So, hats off to him for that."
Pairing a firework display with Baker's two-hour projection mapping show, Thredbo village emulated wintery vibes for all in attendance. Be Productions added another projection element to the weekend fun using Epson's Pro L1755UNL projector. Setting up the laser display in their room at the Alpine Hotel, Be Productions was able to project directly onto the front of the Alpine Hotel in the village.

"It just made it feel real nice and wintery, lots of excitement around to kick off the season," continued McAvoy. "The Epson high brightness laser series have got an alpine mode where they're able to operate in sub-zero temperatures. Thank goodness for that because it was very cold, very wet also."
In addition to operating at sub-zero temperatures, Epson's laser projectors pack power and high brightness into a portable, nimble chassis. The housing makes the projectors a versatile tool for projecting straight onto hillsides or the front of building. Plus, production companies and digital artists can stack models if additional brightness is needed - something Be Productions praises about Epson models.
"They are definitely the workhorse in our inventory," said McAvoy.
