TRIBUTE IN LIGHT

CINEMATOGRAPHY

THE SEPTEMBER 11th MEMORIAL & MUSEUM

TRIBUTE IN LIGHT

BACKGROUND

Each year, The National September 11th Memorial & Museum produces the Tribute in Light from dusk to dawn on the night of September 11th. The lights are meant to honor those killed in the September 11th attacks and celebrate the unbreakable spirit of New York City.

PROJECT

In 2017, the foundation contracted Nova to produce a film that captured the emotion and scale of this installation. To account for the fixed schedule of the lights, the entire film had to be produced in a single evening.

RESULTS

Today, the film is hosted on the National September 11th Memorial & Museum website and is used by the foundation to convey the gravity of the installation to both the visitors and donors who support this annual event.

PROCESS

Our aim behind this piece was to explore how the lights can be seen by New Yorkers everywhere and how they can connect us in the same way that we were on the morning of September 11th. 

 

Through this film, we hope to showcase the beauty of the lights, pay tribute to the event that brought them to existence and remember all those that were lost. 

"They Are Our Searchlights, Aiding Us in the Long Struggle Find Some Meaning in That Tragic Day, and Lighting a Path Toward the Possibility of Hope and Rebirth."
