Friday night is going to be epic. No, really. Phoenix-based laser light show and visual effect production company Epic FX is inviting the downtown community to stop by Walter Studios to experience its newest creation, L.I.V.I.D., which stands for laser integrated video interactive display.
Founded by digital artist Devin Fleenor, Epic FX "exists to illuminate the world through living, breathing organic works of visual art," collaborating on such events as ARTELPHX, the Decibel Festival, the Grand Canyon University basketball promo, and the Mr. Meeble "Star Power" music video.
The purpose of the L.I.V.I.D. demo is to showcase the project's potential and get feedback from other creatives in the community. The demo will be free and open to the public at Walter Studios from 8 to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 30 and 8 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 31. For more information, visit epicfx.com or check out the event on Facebook.
