Secrets of the Olympic Opening Ceremony In Sochi

The spectators participated in the show too, they created the background illumination – 40 000 of them got a necklace with a big glowing medal. Inside it had LEDs and an infrared sensor. In a necessary moment an infrared signal was transferred from under the cupola of the stadium to the medals and they glowed different colors.

But the giant views of different images (maps, photographs, pictures etc) had the dominant role to create the background of the show. For example, the map of each country-participant was as large as 100x60m. All this combination of light and colors was provided by 120 powerful projectors.

The basement of the stadium was also used very actively. Some decorations were lifted by special elevators, the stage for sportsmen and actors was opened for seventeen seconds only.

It goes without saying that the main participants of the show were people, not decorations. Synchronism between them was achieved by means of wireless headsets. Besides, special marking was made on the stage in order they could orinet themselves.

For a three minute video where so many Russian stars were playing, all scenes were created on computers. Some rowers in a boat were even finished by drawing.

Generally 3000 costumes were made for the actors. A lot of props was used. In the scene with cars – all cars were real and were driven by their owners.

    Sorry dear, like many Westerners, we’re boycotting the Russian Olympics due to your country’s narrow-minded bigotry. We will embrace all you have when you learn to be tolerant, open-minded people like other advanced, civilized societies. Until then, you can degenerate in your backward prejudice and phobias.

    Shut up dolores.
    Canada and a lot of other western countries are not boycotting the olympics. In fact many canadian and american companies were involved in the opening ceremony. I’m not saying I agree with Russia for their views on that subject but I think at one point its the olympics, not a gay pride parade.
