Macklemore - Tour Visuals 'Downtown' MTV EMA's & World Tour


Client: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - MTV EMAs 2015
Agency: Hello Charlie

Working with Hello Charlie I created the stage visuals for Macklemore's performance which opened the MTV emas 2015. The set consisted of three separate stages which all synched together as the artists moved around the arena for the performance. 

I was responsible for creating the 3d city based on provided 2d artwork and then the composite of this with extra elements before finally grading it. Various lighting version were created to show the journey through from sunrise to sunset. I also created an overhead city street as well as a close up exterior of a building which was used when Nally was lifted up on a wire in front of the moon. These elements were then edited on site to match the stage choreography and show timings. 

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are now using an edited version of the tour visuals on their 2016 tour.
