TAPI Groundbreaking Ceremony Dome Projection – Turkmenistan (2015)
API is an international natural gas pipeline project which aims to export up to 33 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year through a 1,800-kilometer (approx) pipeline from Turkmenistan to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.
Dome was a hemi-sphere dome, not an ordinary one so creating the content to cover it was more difficult because of its anamorphic structure. Another challenge was that in Turkmenistan the audience and the high protocol sits face to face so they watch the content from 2 opposite angles. So our content had to be able to tell the same thing and give the same feeling from every angle.
In this latest one we built the natural gas facility from zero in realistic 3d after the capsule was buried in the ground by the Presidents. In the same spot where the facility were going to built the audience was able to experience it in 360 degree. Around 140 artists, designers and technologists from 7 different countries worked for the production to be able to create this extraordinary project in such a short time.
