Heidi Williams: Using technology to create stunning visual effects

9th May 2012

Technology, the saying goes, is an enabler.  A facilitator. 

Often it does its job most effectively when invisible or at least when used elegantly enough that it’s difficult to understand exactly what it is that it’s doing other than to understand that it’s very useful and very powerful – google is perhaps an obvious example of this.

Sometimes though, whilst the technology may on the one hand be a means to an end - a tool that creates something stunning and impressive with the end goal being engagement and stimulation of an audience – the magic of the technology itself, the “how are they doing that” wonder and awe of the audience is the real talking point, the real engagement that keeps people talking long after the event itself.

For a clever example of how technology can be used to not only impress and engage with an audience, but keep them talking about what they have seen, check out this video:
