"Throwback Thursday"


The Labatt Blue Pond Hockey tournament is back next week, and we have fond memories of being involved a couple of years ago when the Riverworks facility was just nearing completion.

A couple of months before the Labatt Blue Pond Hockey tournament came to Buffalo's Riverworks in 2015, the agency handling the logistics contacted RPM to provide a creative element. We proposed a "Snow Globe" photo backdrop.

The Snow Globe was comprised of a custom painted backdrop, a 3-D model of Riverworks, a bench, a video projector and a simulated frozen pond and snow bank. We created animation of swirling snowflakes that settle to the floor, as happens in a shaken snow globe, and projected it onto the backdrop. Visitors had their picture taken by an onsite photographer, who printed out the photo instantly. Of course, lots of people took selfies.

Riverworks is a great facility and a wonderful asset to Buffalo's reborn waterfront. We wish them continued success and encourage people to visit the Labatt Pond Hockey tournament.
