MONTREAL, June 8 /CNW Telbec/ - A Montreal company has been chosen to design and produce one of the key entertainment spectacles of the summer in Ottawa. The National Capital Commission (NCC) has given Moment Factory the mandate of telling Canadians' story in a sound and light show that, for the next five years, will illuminate the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings for the next five consecutive summers.
Developed in collaboration with the NCC, Moment Factory's Mosaika show is the result of more than 200 interviews with Canadians of all backgrounds. It is through their stories, that the foundation of this country and Canadian values are illustrated. Using cutting edge technology in video mapping, the show, vibrant with light and emotion, also highlights the unique and magnificent architecture of the Center Block of Canada's Parliament Buildings.
"We are extremely honoured that the NCC has chosen Moment Factory to showcase the history of Canada and Canadians to residents and visitors of both this country and the entire world. It is a very prestigious assignment for us to illuminate Canada's Parliament Buildings, which are undoubtedly among the country's most magnificent buildings", stated Éric Fournier, executive producer of Moment Factory. "We believe that our unique integration of light and image projection will dynamically convey the spirit and energy of 21st-century Canada to the world."
