Sydney 2000 Olympic Games – Opening and Closing Ceremonies

For 12 months our workshop operated under secrecy to realise the extensive suite of props, scenic items, stages and costumes for these highly regarded Ceremonies. Our team of over 200 specialised technicians, in conjunction with the segment directors and designers, guided these shows through the development, prototyping and production of many thousands of individual items, both flown and ground based. A highlight was the Kelly Horse, which breathed fire, ate an apple out of our heroine's hand, then transformed into a windmill!
