Out of the blue two weeks ago while still working on some other projects for Carrie Underwood, American Idol, and my own film I got a crazy phone call. Activision was doing a big concert and they needed screens for it. IMMEDIATELY... and lots of them. Plus game logo videos.
The line up: Eminem, Usher, NERD, Pharrell, Soundgarden, Jane's Addiction, Rihanna, Dead Mau5, David Guetta, and a slew of others.
Now, that's just not a job you turn down. So we jumped in and worked it.
New talent was being added up until the last hour. We were still creating name-branded screens and sending them via internet until the audience was being let into the theater.
Crazy week, but the show by all accounts was a big success for them. For myself I was only disappointed it seems they didn't have time to lock the playback sync... because it's not even close to locked. Oh well. But - as long as we do our best work and everyone is happy and we enhance the experience for the audience - that's what counts. Also I think a few of those artists will become new clients.
Here are a few samples.
I want to mention that the RHEA motorcycle logo was created by
Heather Poon who I found on alivenotdead and hired! Very talented artist. This is the third artist I've employed after meeting them on alivenotdead.
Another alivenotdead artist working on these was
Robert Morris (who I introduced to alivenotdead). the David Guetta as well as Dead Mau5 (which was a group effort that he brought to the finish line).
Can't find many good videos on youtube yet, but here are a few random ones:
Here are a few random clips I took off YouTube. (Note that live shots are added live and were not part of the design... normally those live images are on other screens... grrrrr.)
