We were the second largest to the US...

Canada enters the opening ceremonies at BC place…

Or was is just so many projector angles overlapping that the shadows got covered up?

There was some stunning imagery. They must have had hundreds of projectors going. At one point, they turned the entire floor into a prairie wheat field. I kept trying to figure out where they were projecting from. Could it have been from below? If it was from above, I don’t understand how we didn’t see the dancers’ shadows more. Perhaps Brent and Tash figured out the trick…

You can see the dancer at the top of the floor...

VanOC did a great job.

I felt bad that Katrina Lemay-Doan didn't get to light the flame with Gretzky, Nash, and Green.

The only shortcoming was a malfunction in one of the arms of the Olympic cauldron that failed to deploy.

  2. Has CTV come after you for copyright infringement yet? If so I know a good lawyer from the firm Dewey, Cheatum and Howe.

  3. Much of the projection was definitely from above…since they were also projecting into the stands (and they were was too much mechanics and things under the stage)…but I think they had 3 or more projectors for every image…therefore no shadows. Imagine resolving those vector matrices!

  4. I loved that they didn't feel the need for security… people were running right up there with him.
