Amber, a full-service game development agency, and Arden, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting creative programs and the game development community, today announced participation in Let’s Glow SF, a public art event that uses video projection mapping techniques with light and colors to project virtual images from local and international artists onto iconic buildings throughout San Francisco’s Financial District. From December 3-12, 2021, visitors who pass by the outdoor exhibition space coordinated by Arden with creative partner Mindscape Studio, and sponsored by Amber, will be able to admire artistic creations on display.
Mihai Pohontu, CEO of Amber, said: “Community has always been a core value for our business, and we strive to engage in cultural programs that deliver real social impact. Joining this year’s Let’s Glow SF event is an opportunity for us to support our local Bay Area community, reaching visitors of all walks of life with a visually delightful show. We hope this event warms the hearts of the viewers and puts a smile on their faces this winter season.”
Arden’s concept animation for the Let’s Glow SF event is “A Winter Dream.” Winter is the time of the year when the days are the shortest, welcoming long nights when we dream of fantastic places, enveloped in magic. A winter dream is a journey through surreal worlds, where real elements behave in unexpected ways. It’s a time machine that leads us through the chapters of this journey, replete with visions of music, toys, candy, rockets, and castles. Arden’s animation features a clockwork device, candy clouds, the illuminated sky, and an enchanted castle, all combined with a merry melody of various musical elements at play.
