SAN FRANCISCO – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Amber, a full-service game development agency, and Arden, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting creative programs and the game development community, today announced their participation in Let’s Glow SF, a public art event that uses video mapping projection techniques with light and color to project virtual images of local and international artists onto iconic buildings in San Francisco’s financial district. From December 3 to 12, 2021, visitors walking past the outdoor exhibition space coordinated by Arden with creative partner Mindscape Studio and sponsored by Amber, will be able to admire the artistic creations on display.
Mihai Pohontu, CEO of Amber, said, âCommunity has always been a core value for our business, and we strive to engage in cultural programs that have 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 from all walks of life with a visually delightful spectacle. We hope this event warms the hearts of viewers and puts a smile on their face this winter season.
Arden’s concept animation for the Let’s Glow SF event is âA Winter Dreamâ. Winter is the time of year when the days are shortest, welcoming long nights where one dreams 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 guides us through the chapters of this journey, filled with visions of music, toys, candy, rockets and castles. Arden’s animation features a clockwork mechanism, candy clouds, the illuminated sky, and an enchanted castle, all combined with a cheerful melody of various musical elements in play.
