The extraordinary light and shadow effects laid the foundation for the success of the opening ceremony. LEDs that are widely used in performances are used to the maximum here, creating the most in the past. The technological breakthroughs such as battery storage have solved the LED energy problem.
The "fantastic five rings" rising into the air are depicted on a large net by 44,000 LEDs. Even the costumes on the actors are also embellished with LEDs. With the change of the actors' formation, the starry sky comes to the world and the "Bird's Nest" phantom reappears ...
The Chinese tradition of "gong and drum opening" has not been abandoned by the opening ceremony team, but the selection and production of specific instruments are still beyond everyone's expectations. The ancient Chinese percussion instrument "Fu" became the ultimate choice. Zhang Yimou carefully conceived the final countdown before the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games. At 8 o'clock on the evening of August 8, 2008, the Fou array moved with the rhythm of light waves. In the rhythm of thunder, the words 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, and 10 flashed continuously from the glowing Fou surface. In the last 10 seconds, the striking rhythm of the Fou array, together with the huge 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 words flashing continuously on the Fou surface, will count down with the passion of the audience. Lifting to the climax, also completed the coolest countdown in history.
It is reported that at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, more than 600 competition lights inside the "Bird's Nest" were all discarded, and Zhang Yimou chose to use its own lighting fixtures. As technology enters the digital age, lighting effects also transition to digital lights. This emerging lighting effect makes the scale and imagination of the stage effect of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games to the extreme.
A type of digital light is used in the Beijing Olympic Games: PG light, which means a large projector in Chinese. It was just put into use in China last year. This is a high-power projection equipment that uses the principle of optical projection and uses high-brightness. The light source projects the content of the negative film on the ground in full color, which can form a very visual impact at night.
In the opening performance, the center of the venue always runs through the large scrolls of the performance, as well as the evolutionary animations from ancient to modern that are successively displayed on the scrolls. After the pre-production, this PG lamp is projected to the center of the venue. The simplicity of the black-and-white contrast of Chinese ink paintings, the gorgeous western oil paintings, and the rich colors of Impressionism are all based on this high-tech technology.
