The Halifax Mooseheads debuted a new 3D on-ice video ahead of two games this past weekend, and it’s awesome. The video showcases some of the great former Mooseheads and some stunning visuals.
On-ice 3D projections have become all the rage over the past few seasons, but one of the best we’ve seen in the past few years came courtesy of the Halifax Mooseheads during the 2014 QMJHL post-season. The Mooseheads outdid themselves this past weekend, though, delivering a three-minute on-ice pregame show that turned the ice into a massive screen.
The show starts with a flag breaking out from the center of the ice, but it really picks up when Metric’s ‘Stadium Love’ hits:
The projection, which was created by Buoy Marketing and Production, is awesome.
It’s great that the video included a number of former Mooseheads. The first player shown is Jean-Sebastien Giguere, but fans were also presented with cell-shaded versions of Alex Tanguay, Nathan MacKinnon and Nikolaj Ehlers, among others.
The show continued with ‘Stadium Love’ going right into ‘Nowhere With You’ by Joel Plaskett Emergency, with the apropos opening line about taking the Dartmouth ferry. After a number of Mooseheads highlights, the graphics-heavy 3D show kicked right back in with Sloan’s ‘Money City Maniacs’ as the backing track as the Mooseheads took the ice.
As good as the pregame show may have been, though, it didn’t spark the Mooseheads to victory. They lost Friday, the day the on-ice show debuted, to Rimouski, 6-1, and then dropped Saturday’s game 8-4 to Gatineau.
