Projection Mapping and Lighting Show : Upopoy Kamuy Symphonia


アイヌ民族の歴史や文化を伝える日本初の国立施設 Upopoy (ウポポイ) が7/12 Sun に北海道白老町にオープン。民族博物館や体験型フィールドミュージアム、民族共生公園などで構成され、失われつつあるアイヌ文化を復興・発展させる拠点として注目を集めています。

今回JKDで担当させて頂いたのは、7/18 Satより開始された夜のウポポイの目玉となる大型のプロジェクションマッピングとラインティングを絡めたショウ。アイヌに伝わる創世神話を、繊細かつダイナミックな14分弱の手書きフルアニメーションと、魂とよさぶるような音楽、サウンドデザインとのシンクロで描いています。
映像作品は、ドーム型の体験交流ホールの壁面をメインに、周辺の丘や川、彫像などにプロジェクションマッピング。広大な敷地のいたるところに配置されたライティングが、音楽とマッピング映像にタイトにシンクロ、幻想的で、ストーリーに引き込まれるような空間演出に成功。JKDがこれまでに制作したオーディオビジュアルワークの中でもベスト3の1本に入る仕上がりとなりました。音楽はOKI Dub Ainu Bandで世界的な評価を得る音楽家、OKI そして、同じく札幌を拠点とした世界的な活動で知られるKuniyuki Takahashi. 本物の表現に迫るべく、真剣勝負のコラボレーションにアニメーターは、山田遼志、小野ハナ, 久保雄太郎, 有吉達宏の4名。オープニングとエンディングのモーションは、JKD visual team のShotaro Tomiyama + Ko Kudo が、全体の映像ディレクションは、シェーンレスターが担当しています。
(8/30までは月曜を除く毎日、9月以降は毎週土日と休日夜 日没後数回上映)

Japan’s first-ever national facility that shares the Ainu history and culture, Upopoy, made its grand opening on July 12th Sunday in Shiraoicho, Hokkaido.
It consists of a folklore museum, an interactive field museum, and an Ainu symbiotic park – a hub to revive and develop the fading Ainu culture once again.

JKD was given the privilege to work on the huge projection mapping & lighting show – the highlight night event for Upopoy – that started on Saturday, July 18th. The 14 minute delicately and dynamically hand drawn full animation, in sync with soul-stirring music and sound design, illustrates the genesis myth of the Ainu culture. The visual piece is projected mainly onto the walls of the dome-shaped Cultural Exchange Hall, as well as the surrounding hills, rivers, and sculptures. Lights set up in various places across the vast site syncs tightly with the music and mapping images, and brings about a mystical spatial presentation that pulls the audience right into the story. We can proudly say that this piece definitely ranks in JKD’s TOP 3 audio-visual works. Music was composed by OKI, a world-class musician and leader of the OKI Dub Ainu Band, as well as Kuniyuki Takahashi, based in Hokkaido but well known across the globe. 4 animators, Ryoji Yamada, Tatsuyoshi Ariyoshi, Hana Ono, Yutaro Kubo put their heads together in collaboration to create the most astonishing and authentic animation expression possible. The opening and ending motion is by Shotaro Tomiyama + Ko Kudo from the JKD visual team, and the overall visual direction by Shane Lester.
This special feature is shown everyday except for Monday until 8/30. After September, Sat, Sun, and Public Holidays, a few times per day after sunset. No reservations needed.
If you plan to visit Hokkaido, you mustn’t miss it!
