“Work it, Make it, Do it, Make us Harder, Better Faster, Stronger”
– Daft Punk
Fisheye is definitely growing. Three years ago we moved to bigger premises in Wetteren, two years ago our staff doubled, last year we bought a new 5-axis CNC machine and this year it was time for a new CNC water jet!
With this water jet, we can cut bigger sheets of up to 4 by 2 metre. That’s twice as much as the previous equipment. Admittedly, saying goodbye to the old machine was a bit sad. But we constantly set our sights higher! And we can work ever faster and more efficiently with a sharper focus.
So we can guarantee a faster flow from your creative idea to a detailed end result.
New machines means new people, as well. Welcome on board Erik, Emma, Bram, Felix, Michiel and Siebe!
The gift is a story about a quest. Interpreted by four moving 98” screens and two dancers. Thinking outside the box.
Two processes intertwined to finally converge beautifully. On the one hand, the movements of the screens were tested with practicable transitions and put in a sequence. On the other hand, the movements of the dancers were worked out in relation to the screens. It was clear from the start that we wanted to work with Ludovio Einaudi’s ‘Choros’. That made the transition to an actual dance easier. We let two dancers do their thing with the plans and the result was an installation somewhere between innovative technology and narrative aesthetics. The four mechanical robot arms bring four screens to life synchronously in a choreography, like a constant dialogue between the robot arms, the dancers and the screens. What you see is only a framed part of reality. The screens are like windows, suggesting a bigger imaginary world that lies behind them…
The result could be seen during the light festival in Ghent, where 835,000 visitors came to watch it over a four-day period. But if you missed it or would like to find out more, click here!
### Virtual car crash reality
Car crash simulators are not especially new, but recently Fisheye was approached to make one that is somewhat more ‘immersive’ than previous versions. When the Vlaamse Stichting Verkeerskunde (the Flemish Foundation for Traffic Engineering) supplied Fisheye with the brief for this project, we knew it would be the perfect job for us. It was a job which would involve our whole team: the design team, set builders, technicians, the content creators and more.

Antwerp is the most important city in the world when it comes to diamonds. So in 2018 they plan to devote an entire year to this. They wanted to celebrate the start of that year with a dome in which a film was shown about the importance of diamonds for the city, without coming across as pedantic. A show was what they wanted and a show was what the visitors in Antwerp got. From scenario to a 360° film as the end product, consisting of filmed images, illustrations by Chris Vosters and animated pictures created by our own post-production team, the entire production was done by Fisheye.
The end result was on show for a month in a dome on the Astridplein square, right in front of the train station. Fisheye took care of all the technical aspects of the projection, too. And we sure noticed the cold!

Our company will be closed between 22th December 2017, and 2th January 2018. There will be some activity in our workshop, but we won’t pickup the phone 😉
