Spring Is Awaken by The Fierce Lion
“灵猊” (Ling Ni) is an alias for the lion. The lion is the auspicious beast in the hearts of the people of all ethnic groups in China, symbolizing prosperity, success and good luck. “醒”(Xing) in “醒春” (Xing Chun) represents a genre of the Lion Dance, which also means the revival of all things on earth. “春” (Chun) as a pun indicates “Spring” and “the Lunar New Year.”“灵猊醒春”(Spring Is Awakened by The Fierce Lion) is chosen as the theme implying that “醒春” awakens auspiciousness at the very beginning of a new year.
At the beginning stage of creation, Flint Walk has researched abundant intangible cultural heritage and come to know that the traditional lion dance is outstanding Chinese folk art. Lion Dance can be different from northern and southern areas. The southern lion is also known as the awakening lion. Lions are made of colored cloth strips. Each lion is generally performed by two people working together, one dancing head and one at tail. Under the music of gongs and drums, performers dress up as lions and make various lion movements.
After decided the creative idea of integrating the traditional lion dance and Naked-eye 3D tech, Flint Walk team swiftly established the lion dance squad to product this project promptly. At the same time, a local well-known lion dance team from Chengdu was invited to the studio to depict the culture of “The Awakening Lion” through live shooting. It only took about a month from upfront content creation to visual presentation and the video was published at the right time to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
Through innovation, the team of Flint Walk has brought a grand visual feast to general public. Hope to call on more people to acknowledge and protect intangible cultural heritage and willingly to pass on the "history that can not speak up."
