New year show created by Les Petits Français and organized on the Arc de Triomphe, Paris. Similar to 2015’s celebration with 3D mapping projection on the Arc and fireworks final.
I came to film the preparations the day before the show. I had a staff badge with full access which allowed me to get the best view point and opportunity to wander around the arc while it was closed to the public and shoot some epic hyper-lapse.
I got access to footage from TV and drone that I implemented in my video. Those were especially great to get more angles of fireworks action.
I had to filter my footage to compensate for light pollution (orange night sky) and applied my special laser filter again (same problem we had at the 2015 show 2 years ago).
My pictures and video were published on the show creator’s website with extra info about the show and even made an appearance on NHK Japanese TV and BFM French TV.
