Cornell Homecoming

We give Ivy League more excitement each fall with our laser and pyrotechnic stadium show that we create for Cornell's Homecoming celebration.

Since 2012, we have worked hand-in-hand with Cornell’s Events Management, Alumni Affairs & Development office to create a spectacular laser light and fireworks display to closeout their friday night Homecoming pep rally. After many iterations of audio and storyboards for the 2013 finale, we were set to create a show that truly conveyed Cornellian spirt and how it is interwoven with the surrounding Ithaca community. An extended sports segment had Cornell’s mascot, Big Red the bear, playing everything from football to rowing. To balance out the sports we added a special segment just to highlight Cornell’s Big Red Band. In the video above we created scenes of Ithaca, focused on school traditions, and broke into some of the popular Cornellian lore, animating in an entire scene dedicated to the pumpkin on McGraw Tower.

New in 2013, we proposed to be part of the Homecoming week celebration by using LED lighting and projecting on buildings around campus to add to the festive environment.
