Project Description

Comets Light Up the Dallas Skyline

Comets Light Up the Dallas Skyline is an example of project based learning with real world clients. The project provided students in the 3D Studio (also known as the Light Squad) the opportunity to create a program of curated animations for the iconic LED façade of the OMNI Hotel in downtown Dallas. An audience of close to 7 million people experienced the creative artwork of ATEC students during its three night showing.
