The “Holiday Laser Show” in San Antonio is produced by Urban-15, for the benefit of thousands of schoolchildren who are bused in to see the show.
Laser Spectacles was back at Urban-15 December 7 – 11, 2010, performing spectacular holiday shows for the children. Public shows were at 7 PM on Dec. 9, 10, and 11, with an added matinee for Dec. 11!
We worked hard this year, and brought in our favorite collaborator Rico Morales to create some new artwork. Using the Lasergraph DSP laser show supercomputer, we were able to find new approaches to creating characters that lived in true 3D space. Here is a sequence showing the 3D wooden soldier creating a 3D Christmas Star with his hands:
Rico used images of Mary and Baby Jesus to create a storyline for “Soulful Christmas”, and created an environment of love for the holidays:
Of course, we set up mirrors and extra laser projectors around the room to get the full, immersive laser show effect. Here are some pictures of the entire combination:
Previous year’s shows: From Dec. 8-11, 2009 at the Urban-15 HQ on South Presa in downtown San Antonio, we performed for and educated the kids three times daily. On Friday and Saturday, we performed evening shows open to the public.
We used all air cooled lasers – an RGB for screen graphics and mirror bounces, RGB and an RGY beam projectors flanking the screen, and a green beam projector below the screen. Also added were a Blisslights DMX star projector from the rear of the room, and a Laser Galaxy Lumia Projector next to the graphics projector. This room is the sanctuary of a church so there is an audience barrier that serves to hide the graphics and lumia projectors.
The lasers bring catchy holiday songs to life, as we visit all of the famous holiday characters – Santa, Rudolf, Frosty, the famous Hippo song, and many more that kids of all ages love.
