There's something else going on in Weymouth in Dorset right now, apart from (but very much linked to) the Olympic sailing. Here's the first of two 360° music films that are being premiered at the ICCI360 Arena on Weymouth Beach during the Olympic and Paralympic games as part of the Cultural Olympiad. Its now being shown in the 21 metre dome on a 63 metre x 6 metre screen, while the sailors are out on the water fighting for medals at the 2012 Olympics.
Nudge is a collaboration between Bournemouth-based music artist Momo:Tempo and production company Lovelove Films. The two were brought together by the iNet's Visual Soundtrack programme, in association with Creative England, INet Southwest creative industries and funded by European Regional Development Fund. They have also teamed Exeter-based Wiseman Productions with hip-hop duo Carpet Face and Audible 1 for another 360° video to also appear at the Weymouth venue.
Audiences of up to 700 at a time are treated to an immersive audio visual experience, and are able to participate in a diverse range of creative and cultural activities during the Olympics, including stunning live music, theatre performances, 360° film presentations, high resolution photography, animations, and interactive gaming events to excite the public and Olympics visitors.
