Silent Partners Studio
We collaborated with Silent Partners who designed and conceived the content for Katy Perry's Witness: The Tour which was a whirlwind of 80s infused aesthetics, with a playful approach to visual conception.
We worked on the Intro of the show as well as the track Tsunami.
For the Intro content we recreated Katy's eye and had it looking around at the audience members. We combined a 2D digital painting of the iris with a 3D model of the eye, mapping its movement to live action footage taken by our in-house artist. We then digitally metamorphosized the eye to enter the colourful and whimsical universe of Katy Perry.
Tsunami involved using live footage of Katy Perry shot on a green screen at a high frame rate to emulate the physics of water. We integrated her into an underwater world of 1980s cyberpunk colors and light.
Witness: The Tour is travelling worldwide and was included in Pollstar's "2017 Year-End Top 100 Worldwide Tours" list.
