With a live viewing audience of 1.5 million, and a television audience estimated to be more than 1 billion, Foti helped Sydney and Australia usher in 2011 with a trademark spectacular fireworks display on Sydney Harbour.
As well as the traditional 9pm family fireworks display, which featured a unique red and white pyrotechnic checkerboard waterfall, Foti produced the fireworks for the midnight display, which included the Sydney Harbour Bridge and roadway approaches, 7 barge positions and 7 city rooftops.
The theme for this year’s City of Sydney-produced New Year’s Eve was “Make Your Mark’’ and featured newly developed “X-shaped” fireworks as well as other unique pyrotechnic effects.
“Our product development program for the event starts at the beginning of the year as we work to develop and integrate new and safe effects with the theme for the event”, said Foti creative Director Fortunato Foti.
