LUMA Projection Arts Festival Explainer 2018 /Shoulders of the Past - LUMA Projection Arts Festival - Light Harvest

LUMA is the only festival in the country focusing on projection mapping as a narrative art form. The event transforms an Upstate New York city into an outdoor art gallery once every year and the streets are packed with festival goers.

In this 3D projection mapped narrative film, we explore a young girls imagination as she becomes inspired by her aging grandfathers thoughts on the future. The story is inspired by how an older generation can inspire a new generation, even when they are not around to see what transpires.
