I had the incredible opportunity with our team at Chaotic Moon to bring 4 projectors and a handful of cameras into the recently completed overflow tunnel built by the Waller Creek Conservancy running along the Red River district in downtown Austin. The tunnel is 70 feet underground, 26 feet wide and over 12 blocks long. We were given access just days before they flooded the tunnel and were some of the only people outside of the construction company to go inside the tunnel.
This opportunity came up just days before a very busy SXSW and we had about 5 days to prepare content and logistics for brining that much equipment underground. This video was created to highlight the completion of the tunnel and to raise public awareness on the efforts of Waller Creek Conservancy.
