During the summer of 2012 we approached the Valletta Local Council with an idea that had been growing in us for quite a while, 'Can we a mapped countdown show for the Valletta NYE celebration?'. The answer was a resounding yes and all that needed to be done was to figure out the financing of the project. As we believed in the project Shadeena decided to fund the visual side of the project and the money for the equipment and crew to realise the project was sourced through a grant from the Malta Arts Fund and from G7 Events, who agreed to allocate a portion of the budget allocated by the local authorities to the project.
This was definitely the most ambitious project we've set out to do in 2012, both technically and creatively and unfortunately some things did go wrong, including starting the project from scratch in mid-December due to technical problems. From this project we have learned a lot and hope to be able to continue pushing our team and our experience in the coming year with new projects and new challenges.
We wish you all a great 2013.
