Mediacorp’s marquee event, Star Awards is back for the 24th year! Sparing no effort to deliver the best show possible, Star Awards 2018 will bring viewers a truly memorable one - night ceremony featuring key awards to be handed out to the year’s biggest winners.

Visual feast

Highlights of this year’s event include a special dome from Germany, illuminated by special visual effects projection, in a semi-indoor venue. The dome featured the Top 40 nominated artistes walking across a “floating” catwalk platform.

The dome is 22.5 meters in height and 20 meters radius. It took 3 days to assemble the structure. 6 projectors were deployed inside the dome for "Dome Projection Mapping". Audience on location and at home were able to have an immersive 360 visual experience.

Inside the MES Theatre, there was a special holographic segment featuring all the past recipients of the ‘All Time Favorite Artistes Award’, communicated to the audience in the form of holograms. This hologram projection was the first in Singapore broadcast history and was the opening act of Star Awards 2018.

The show leveraged on technology expertise from Singapore, Germany, China and India to create an extraordinary visual spectacle and elevate the show to new heights.  It was a challenging experience for the Senior Art Designer and the Lighting/Sound/Camera crew.
