Projection Magic Illuminates Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak

PAV was honoured to be the official projection supplier for the awe-inspiring event, Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak. 

This remarkable festival, presented as part of Perth Festival Special Projects "EverNow WA", captured the hearts of over 300,000 visitors in 2017 and 2019. This year, it returned with even more spectacular 3D projections to light up Kings Park, weaving through stories of Western Australia's beautiful South-West and the rich culture that has nurtured this cherished land for millennia. A free-event suitable for all audiences, Boorna Waanginy was testament to our belief in making world-class cultural experiences accessible to everyone.

Let's reminisce on the magic of this event and the behind-the-scenes creation of an unforgettable experience.

The Technical Wizardry:

Our involvement in Boorna Waanginy went beyond providing projectors; it encompassed creating a visual spectacle that left audiences in awe. We supplied an array of projectors with an astounding combined lumen power of 284,000 lumens. PAV's commitment to staying at the forefront of technology played a significant role in delivering these breathtaking projections that formed the core of the event's visual spectacle.

Crafting Immersive Experiences:

Boorna Waanginy was not just about visual displays; it was about weaving a rich tapestry of audio, lighting, and projection. The event featured numerous light fixtures, 40 speakers, and 22 channels of audio, together crafting a mesmerising soundscape. Working alongside other industry professionals at the top of their games, we created an immersive sensory experience that transformed the audience's reality into a world of wonder.

A Journey Through Stories:

Walking into the event was like stepping into a portal to another realm. It took visitors on a profound journey through various stages, each with a remarkable story. From "Ashbaby" to "Swan Song" and "Extinction," the event compelled audiences to confront the consequences of human behaviour on local species. The journey concluded at "Future Weaving," where community groups united, leaving a lasting sense of upliftment. PAV took pride in helping these stories come to life through our projection expertise.

Behind the Scenes:

The setup was a marvel in itself. Our team executed an impressive, choreographed dance each night to park two trucks across specified marks on the ground. Inside those trucks were the projectors, ready to beam out magic. Our dedicated team changed sleep schedules to light up the night and went through a meticulous and collaborative process to turn dreams into reality across four nights.

Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak was not just a fleeting spectacle; it was a profound celebration of culture, storytelling, and the natural beauty of Western Australia. PAV's role as the official projection supplier left an indelible mark on the event, enhancing the overall experience for all who attended. The magic of Boorna Waanginy continues to resonate in the hearts and minds of those fortunate to experience its enchanting wonder. Once again, the power of art, technology, and community came together to create something truly magical.
