National Countdown New Year's Eve

Wheel of Water

In celebration of the official countdown to 2017, we developed an entirely custom made waterwheel. This large water circle of 10 meters wide, was also equipped with a water-projection screen in the middle. To this we projected video with 4 powerful 40,000 lumen projectors.

The circle of water was provided with no less than 36 water jets that were individually controlled by DMX. In addition, 48 waterproof lights are mounted on the circle.

The show was viewed by 60.000 people around the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam and 3 million people live on television. At the end of our countdown, a great fireworks display started on top of the bridge.
