Daily Dose. “The Weeknd’s Stage Setup”

Very unique take on industrial design. Her set pieces can be seen from many prominent events. The Super Bowl to concerts for Kanye West, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

Bio Blurb (http://esdevlin.com/) –

“Es Devlin is a stage designer. She creates kinetic sculptures meshed with light and film for opera, dance, film, theatre, runway shows and concerts.

Her first works were for small fringe theatres in London including the Bush and the Gate. Her canvas has expanded over the past two decades – through the National Theatre, Sadlers Wells, Royal Opera House, La Scala, and onto the O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium, and the Olympic Stadiums in London and Rio.

She has created stage sets in collaboration with Beyoncé, Kanye West, U2, Jay Z, Adele and The Weeknd. She designed the London Olympic Closing Ceremony and the Rio Olympic Opening Ceremony and continues to work in theatre at all scales – most recently ‘Hamlet’ with Benedict Cumberbatch at the Barbican and ‘Faith Healer’ at the Donmar Warehouse. Es’ work has received multiple awards including 3 Olivier Awards, Evening Standard, Critics’ Circle and an OBE. ”

Daily Dose “Santiago”

The blurb – “An animated self-portrait exploring the line of human evolution and a projection of a possible future.
As our evolution turns from biological to technological, are we now the bridge between the born and the made.
I painted this stop frame animation on myself using face paint, a mirror and a camera.

Great use of practical effects and animation.

Daily Dose “This Mess Won’t Make It”

This is some inspirational story telling and graphic work. Not certain of the technique used..feels like the C4D motion capture tool. Definitely some paint brush work done to achieve that great texture on the characters.

Led Zeppelin Montage

This is an acid trip of motion graphics. Quite the visual experience subtle blend of Roto techniques mixed with 3d elements. Easily could make my Daily Dose list, but I’d rather just enjoy the simplicity of aesthetics.  “The measurement of greatest is knowing when to simplify your views”. screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-10-58-21-am screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-10-58-32-am screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-10-59-46-am
