Maroon 5 - Honda Civic Tour

 For the past month I have been working with my good friends in Good Theory on the LED wall content for Maroon 5's 2013 Tour. I started with a bit of work in Columbus, previs and style frames.

 

connection in Houston

The first stop was Chaos Visual in Burbank, CA. Where we spent several weeks of long hours in a non air-conditioned warehouse with at least 8 box fans blowing on our open mac pro towers to keep them cool while rendering. The render Farm got to live in the upstairs air-conditioned office. Lucky render farm..

During the final week, approvals on our content were almost totally complete. With the exception of a few. The show was ready to roll! Maroon 5 Posted the last image here right before the tour left for St. Louis!

Be sure and check out Maroon 5 and our content if the tour comes through your area. The band is a rare mix of professionals they truly are talented musicians & showmen. 

Scott J Salon "Salon Promo 2012"

This was a quick promotion video we built for Scott J Salon. Upon returning from NYC from the terminal 5 event, we went directly into this project with the goal of finishing it before christmas! The 3d elements were created in Maxon C4d, and composited with Aftereffects.  Our goal was to create a world that housed the clients variety of fashion and hair photo-shoots in a clean crisp container while maintaining the salon's brand values. The video was produced by two artists over a five day timeline.
