  1. Are there any live videos on youtube on the games? I remember in the last games there were selection of livestreams in the olympic channel of different games.. its sad i cant see one now...
  2. Well...... any thought about the opening it met my expectations because it was very low.. but I was impressed by the way the mountain opened and it leads to the cauldron, i somehow expect the cauldron will move tho haha anyways i like the cauldron, does anyone has uodate about the second cauldron?
  3. Well this is it! we are hours away, after years of waiting, years of theories, days of sneak peaks, researching about the ceremonies and the tokyo 2020 and yes it finally happening! All of our questions will be answered in any time now! Happy olympics everyone!! I wish to see you on Beijing 2022!! So fun being in the forum with you all. Ive been reading here since it was created and I just created this account just recently!! Still curious for the Closing Ceremony but let us see the opening today #StrongerTogether
  4. At any chances tho it could be too. But what if the petals there are being tied to each other or the petal will move down upon being lit (robotic). Also the mirrors there reminds me of the rio2016 outdoor cauldron that surrounds the cauldron as gate
  5. Exactly I really missed the past ceremonies (not balich's). I understand the situation now about the downscale from the "grandious" (due to a pandemic) but this could be their chance to lift up every ones feelings and get the feeling of fun and the AMAZING factor. Anyways. I hope the "Sobering" ceremony will work and wont disappoint. But yeahhhhhhh im sad.
  6. I have strong guts that the cauldron design will be a flower like, with its petals surrounding the flame, i think it's connected to the torch design (sakura).
  7. According to an article that is posted on Balich wonder show ig Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony will be ‘sobering’ show, not flashy JULY 21 . 2021 TOKYO (Reuters) – Forget the mass choreography, the huge props and the cornucopia of dancer, actors and lights associated with an Olympic Games opening ceremony. Tokyo’s grand opening on Friday will have none of that splendour or grandiosity. Instead it will be a scaled down affair, a “sobering” performance, Marco Balich, longtime Opening Ceremonies Executive Producer, and now a Senior Advisor to the Tokyo ceremonies Executive Producer, told Reuters in an interview. “It will be a much more sobering ceremony. Nevertheless with beautiful Japanese aesthetics. Very Japanese but also in sync with the sentiment of today, the reality,” Balich, who was in charge of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, said Click here for more https://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN2ER09Y
  8. Yes it will be turned down during the anthem , here's a sample in 2012 (listen to the music) The sochi victory ceremony
  9. Each olympics has its own victory ceremony music, and yes the gold medalist's country anthem will be played after they are awarded. The victory ceremony music is played as background music during awarding. Try searching for victory ceremony music of (sochi, pyeongchang, beijing, vancouver
  10. That music was unveiled last few weeks ago together with the official podium and medal plate. That is the official tokyo 2020 victory ceremony music.
  11. I really had fun and get excites seeing these photos!! To more sneak peak finds my friends!!
  12. The oval stage reminds me of Rio 2016 closing ceremony
  13. Yes i also agree to that, i also started to lower my expectations but who knows what tokyo can do. cant wait for the opening
  14. I hope they will not use too much floor projection, i mean Floor Projecrion is great but too much seems mediocre. Imagine, few persons on the stage being eaten by the projection. I hope theyll use huge props like london or sochi or by using harness, utilizing the space above and below, that completes the ceremony. I wonder how would they execute the rings this year.. anyways looking forward this 23rd!!
