Midnight Sherpa in collaboration with Framestore China created the WE Summit opening film, a 3-minute experiential film to run as a prelude to the conference. The opening piece was to be as grand in physical dimension as it was in thematic scope. Three LED screens, custom built in Shenzhen and spanning a total width of almost 300 feet would arc 180 degrees around the audience in the circular venue to create an arresting cinematic experience. Midnight Sherpa and Framestore China developed a narrative centered around Janus, the Roman god of past and future. Through Janus’ eye, we journey through time, nature, astrology, technology, and beyond. A bold visual sense combined with an energetic score by our friends at Yessian Music created a dynamic and memorable installation on an epic scale.E
