Universal's 'Cinesphere' spectacle delivers at its premiere
Written by Gareth H
Well, what can I say? There was hype. Universal 360 – A Cinesphere Spectacular at Universal Studios Florida was to be a first of its kind -- world's biggest show, one that combined floating spheres, movie footage, lasers, projections and fireworks.Tweet
Did it prove to be what they said it would?
In a nutshell, Universal 360 delivered at its public premiere last night just what Universal Orlando said it would. The spheres were the centerpiece upon which fireworks were used in split-second timing. Projectors cleverly used surrounding buildings to maximise the clips that were being shown on the spheres. And lasers were added to fully utilise the whole lagoon area upon which a show for the senses was put on.
Seventeen minutes of memories, literraly projected into your mind. Who remembered that Universal Studios had made so many top movies, including the less obvious ones, Like Babe, Bourne Identity, Erin Brockovich & so many more.?
This feast for the ears & eyes is a must see.
I took video footage, which will be uploaded soon. Just remember that there is much more to see than the footage I took. I couldn't capture it all!
