As Batman turns a spritely 75 this year, fans around the world joyously commemorated the hero’s legendary journey since his first appearance as a comic book hero in 1939. The One Academy had the honour of contributing a super cool Batman 3D Anamorphic image featuring the iconic Bat logo to his birthday celebration in Kuala Lumpur!
Collaborating with prominent shopping mall Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Warner Bro's consumer product licensing agency for Southeast Asia, Pacific Licensing Studio threw a ‘75 Years of Batman’ party recently, rewarding the Caped Crusader’s admirers with plenty of exciting activities.
Under the guidance of their Head of Department, Leo Chong, a group of dedicated Illustration and Entertainment Art students crafted a highly believable visual resembling a Bat logo-shaped hole on the ground, revealing the burning flame underneath the earth surface.
Strategically placed at the Bukit Bintang entrance of Pavilion, the Batman 3D Anamorphic image has pleasantly surprised many visitors to the mall. Anamorphic images are realistic 3D visuals especially if seen from certain angles. With the graphic digitally designed beforehand, students from The One Academy worked tirelessly for days to draw the anamorphic image on the floor.
Other attractions at the show included Batman Hologram Exhibit, featuring 3D, rotating Batmobiles dating back to the classic 1960s TV series. Fans also indulged themselves in a showcase of cool Batman collectibles as well as real-size replicas of a Batmobile and Batpod. Besides, fans had the chance to appreciate the rich history of Batman by walking through the exhibition.
With strong esprit de corps, the students completed the artwork successfully, gained precious working experience and earned the praise of many. The opportunity to work in actual projects beyond the campus has certainly benefited the students, as envisaged by the industry-driven creative education offered in The One Academy.
