FUTURE FIRES AT THE HESS WINERY AND FINE ARTS MUSEUM

One of our favorite events from this 2019 summer was this performance at Hess Winery, put on by Festival Napa Valley on July 11. Future Fires artist David Ostro created projection mapping on a pair of 12-foot diameter screens. 


Much of the imagery for this activation was provided by a special guest for this 50th anniversary of our first walk on the moon: Donald Pettit, NASA astronaut.

Oakland artist David Ostro was tapped to go beyond simple collation of this library of images, instead creating an evolving, kinetic evocation of a journey into space, to the moon, and the trip back to the earth's surface. The site - in the hills above Napa, California - is home to The Hess Collection of art. The occasion was the Founders Dinner, celebrating the benefactors and patrons of Festival Napa Valley and its 2019 season.

FUTURE FIRES PIONEERS IMMERSIVE VISUAL SYSTEMS™ FOR THEATERS.

BERKELEY'S UC THEATER, OUR PILOT PROJECT

Working with the UC Theater in Berkeley, California, we're building a bespoke system that allows projected visuals to radiate to the stage, into the theater itself, and to all points therein. This complements the 360-degree Meyer sound system that is already in place at the UC theater, creating a fully immersive environment: Immersive Visual Systems

With these projections mapped to the internal architecture of the theater we're designing for, we're excited to offer a means to literally surround concertgoers with visual storytelling. This a game-changer, allowing real-time audio-reactive visuals with a huge scope of visual effects.

COMING, NEW YEARS 2020 FROM FUTURE FIRES: SKY LIGHTS™     

Painting in the Sky 

In the New Year, 2020, Future Fires is launching our new drone light show alliance, offering both indoor and outdoor shows with partners who have deep experience with both. 

Drone light shows have been seen at the Super Bowl, at the Olympics, and at Burning Man, and - being quiet, less dangerous and completely non-toxic - are starting to replace traditional fireworks displays.

Carrying their own LED light source, incredibly quick and agile, drone swarms can light up the skies in small numbers, or in assemblies of 100 or more. Smaller drones are employed for indoor shows. Directed from one central hub, there's a deep sense of wonder emanating from the heavenly acrobatics of choreographed drones, moving with a coordination that can seem impossible, a testament to ingenuity and artistry, united. 

“Made famous during the Olympics, the Super Bowl, Coachella, and at the opening of CES in Las Vegas, the outdoor shows feature dozens or even hundreds of the small drones, flying in pre-programmed unison, making for one hell of a light show.”
