Beautiful ceremony. Refreshing to see another new culture on the world (asian) stage. Rehashing Vancouver elements don't bother me. I guess projections will be the technology "thing" we'll see for a while. The dignitary box and raised end zone stages are similar to Vancouver's. Did David Atkins have a role in this production?
I was at the ceremony in Vancouver and the skirt and ground projections definitely come off better on television than in person. I'm assuming it's the same technology here. I like how the whole ceiling is included in these projections. I was confused at times too with what exactly I was looking at with the orientation of the cameras. But I wonder if this all looked washed out in person as it did in BC Place. The ceiling of BC Place was not something you'd want the viewers to see. In fact BC Place is a pretty ugly arena and hopefully it get's it's new roof soon.
Regarding the hole in the ceiling screen as it first opened I was reminded of "Independence Day" as the visiting aliens reveal their weapon of mass destruction to destroy Earth's cities : ).
Thanks for posting!
