News Details

The opening ceremony of the second summer Youth Olympic Games (YOG) was held in Nanjing China on 16 August this year. The Games is the second largest event that China has hosted, with 204 countries and nearly 4000 athletes participating. Fine Art is honored to contribute up to 2000 pieces of its lighting fixtures for the opening ceremony, which was held at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre. 

 

 

Produced by Chen Weiya, who was the Executive Director of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the opening ceremony lasted about 90 minutes and was divided into three chapters to show the main theme of “Share Youth, Create Dream”. In the true spirit of the YOG, the show got off to a lively start and remained that way throughout the extravaganza, which was tailored to appeal to young people and to demonstrate the youthful vitality and spirit of the Games. There were 4,000 performers in total, most whom were young students from Chinese universities.

 

 

The ceremony highlighted the great history of Nanjing and China, its icons and landmarks, including the Purple Mountain Observatory and the Yunjin brocade. Explorer Zheng He’s expeditionary voyages to the west and development of the Silk Road were also showcased, as was the Nanjing 2014 theme song “Dianliang Weilai,”, or “Light Up to Meet the Future,” which was performed by an international selection of singers from China, the Republic of Korea and Russia.

 

 

High-tech floor projections and mega sized television virtual techonology together with impressive stage lighting efforts not only helped expand the acting space of the many performers but created strong visual impact for the audience watching at the stadium and from their television screens at home. Fine Art’s 1500 and 2000 light series were used to elevate the overall visual experience of the ceremony, with their cutting and image forming, CMY and CTO functions illuminating the stage with vivid colours.

 

 

 

It was reported that most stage lighting equipment for the 2008 Beiijng Olympic Games was made up of European brands, but Chinese brands were used for this year’s YOG. This is positive indication of the rising quality of Chinese lighting products and is truly a milestone for the stage lighting industry in China. It is also worthy of note that Fine Art was the largest stage lighting supplier for this ceremony, owing to the excellent performance of its products.
