Qatar was the first Middle Eastern country elected to host the Asian Games – and to the surprise and delight of the world, Doha delivered a vision beyond all expectations. The Opening and Closing Ceremonies became a creative triumph for the country, with an audience of over 2 billion from all parts of the world. Doha redefined the region and arrived on the world stage with an unforgettable experience.
Richard Lindsay, in partnership with Spinifex Group was engaged as the sole media production company to support David Atkins Enterprises for the opening and closing ceremonies for the 15th Asian Games held in Doha, Qatar in 2006.
The opener took the audience on an extravagant adventure through the birth of the universe, to arrive at Doha. 3D monsters and an abundance of CGI sequences were created through 2D and 3D blended motion graphics, to tell the tale of the foundation of Qatar from the uniting of two cultures, from the desert and the sea.
