Working under the direction of Brady Villadsen, and the awesome team over at All Of It Now, I was tasked with designing and animating timecoded visuals for the 5SOS Take My Hand World Tour. The stage design, consisting of multiple large-scale LED outputs, provided a massive canvas allowing for strong utilization of parallax motion. While the immense work was split between the teams at All Of it Now and Moment Factory, I gained the incredible opportunity to animate visuals for the following tracks: YOUNGBLOOD, SHE LOOKS SO PERFECT, TALK FAST, JET BLACK HEART, and MORE.
Since each track desired its own bold look, the animation process consisted of utilizing a myriad of software and skills. The engaging looks designed on my behalf were completed using Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Premiere, Cinema 4D with Redshift, and even Practical Effects. Throughout the process, certain pre-rendered content was delivered to be integrated with real-time software such as Unreal Engine and Notch. I happily got to work again alongside artists Vishal Sharma, Brenton March (VJ CTRLD CHAOS), and Madison Hague Rogers on this immense theatrical feat.
Practical effects process for She Looks So Perfect involved tearing, writing, and scanning dozens of elements to produce a desired tactile result.
