mattygs Posted September 9, 2011 Report Share Posted September 9, 2011 Just coming to the end stages of the Opening Ceremony and *Light it Up* display. Stunned by the events so far, never thought I would see that kind of performance of a ceremony in New Zealand - in this age of video based ceremonies. Had the perfect touch of authentic culture and true rugby spirit, not to mention a nod to the City of Christchurch (for those not aware, the Canterbury rugby jersey are the red and black hoops). Loved the music, Victoria Kelly did a great job. Big fan of the Pacifica choir too, very New Zealand. I was really impressed at how polished the whole thing was, and loved the way that the ceremony really did link in with the hammerhead shark concept which is the basis of the New Zealand 2011 visual identity. Well done David Atkins and team. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
