Announcing Caretta Illumination 2012 "Lumière no Mori"
With Visuals Produced and Directed by Polygon Pictures
November 15 - December 25!

Polygon Pictures ("PPI," President and CEO: Shuzo Shiota, Head Office: Tokyo, Japan) is proud to announce that "Lumière no Mori (Forest of Light)," the 2012 holiday illumination at Caretta Shiodome, will feature a new digital video show produced by our studio.

For the past six years, the Caretta Shiodome shopping complex has continued to push the limits of imagination with its annual Christmas lights installation. Caretta is now celebrating its tenth anniversary, and the complex’s holiday display is known as one of the largest in Japan. In addition to the traditional illumination, this year's event will include a special collaboration called "Lumière no Mori." This visual extravaganza fuses original musical accompaniment with powerful video images projected onto the surrounding walls via 3D projection mapping technology.
PPI is proud to have been a part of this project from the initial stages, helping to plan the 3D projection mapping visuals, directing animation production, and providing technical support. We hope that everyone can enjoy this dazzling and dynamic show, and that it may fill you with all the joys of the Christmas season.

In keeping with our stated mission to "do what no other has done, in unparalleled quality, for all the world to see and enjoy," PPI is committed to cementing our place as a leading company in the digital content business through the continued development of groundbreaking new technologies.
