On November 14th, the Shadow show VERBA on its official YouTube channel presented the first production in the shadow show 3D genre!

In general, Verba is the first shadow team in Ukraine who created a symbiosis of theese genres and presented it to the public. The premiere of a new 3D shadow show took place on April 16, 2018 in the Chernihiv Drama Theater. However, it took a little time to accumulate some shadow moments and resolve the nuances with 3D animation. Because staging in the shadow show 3D is technically much more difficult due to the synchronization of various technological methods. The work uses several projectors and 3D animation should be clear and dynamic.

Therefore, only on November 14, the artists shared with the entire planet an original creative experiment, putting it on the Internet. And they managed to combine the art of shadow theater with the capabilities of 3D graphics and visual effects. Even watching the setting on the screens of monitors – you can not miss the volume of the figures.

As well as the acclaimed and beloved all over the world television series “Game of Thrones”. The director of the production in shadow show 3D genre became director Vladimir Marin, well-known in Ukraine and abroad. most noteworthy, his work viewers could see on such a talent show as “America’s Got Talent“, “Ukraine Got Talent”, “X – Factor”.

In the shadow variation “Legends of Ice and Flame” described a story about atmosphere of a fantastic world created by the authors of books and TV series. Not without the eternal conflict of good and evil, the majestic dragons, chilling white walkers and, of course, the struggle for the desired throne.
