One of the cornerstone celebrations in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, SESQUI brings together technical innovation and art in a multi-faceted celebration of Canada’s heritage, landscape and people. Réalisations is proud to have been a part of SESQUI’s 360 Technical Innovation Team, providing custom equipment, expertise and support for their 360° film, HORIZON. The film is shown in planetariums throughout the country, as well as across Ontario in an inflatable dome theatre (summer 2017).
Réalisations-Montréal also provided expertise in the design phase of the 360 cinematic dome.
Réalisations-Montréal would like to thank:
Alexandre Burton: collaboration on the design of the SLR camera rig
Francois David: collaboration on the design of video filming rig
Guy St-Amour: SESQUI technical designer and dome producer

Réalisations-Montréal provided support for the filming of HORIZON by designing, testing and constructing two separate camera rigs along with the help of our fellow collaborators, without which the end result would not have been possible.
The project required that the rigs be lightweight enough to be mounted to a variety of vehicles for land and aerial shots, yet durable enough to withstand extreme climates. The rigs were used to shoot footage from ninety different locations across all thirteen provinces and territories.
The first rig holds five SLR Canon cameras which shoot time-lapse images.
The second rig holds 3 RED Dragon 6K video cameras.
2017- SESQUI received the Canada 150 Diversity Award at the Canadian Tourism Awards.
2018- HORIZON is a finalist for Best Immersive Experience at the Canadian Screen Awards.
2018- Drew Lightfoot is a finalist for Best Direction (web program or series) for HORIZON at the Canadian Screen Awards.
