Chicago Artist Takes “Out of This World” Around the World
George Berlin Celebrates Apollo Moon Landing Anniversary Launching Epic Tour
CHICAGO, IL – July 20, 2019 – George Berlin Studios is celebrating this year's 50th anniversary of the heroic Apollo 11 moon landing announcing EarthRise: Apollo, a three part space saga series of projection mapping epics planned for performance in the US, Europe, and Asia. The series dances with delight through our innate fascination with outer space, and honors the untiring human will to explore our universe that first thrust us to the moon.
Told over three prestigious projection and light festivals on three continents around the world, each spell-binding story segment voyages on soundscapes of originally composed and compelling music through vibrant candy-colored 3D animation, illustrations, and retro pixel art. The imaginatively stunning stories spun out over 9 combined minutes of magic journey through the history of heavenly wonder and exploration, and amazingly muse over future possibility and discovery.
The venues and events planned to host EarthRise: Apollo are as epic as the stories:
