T-PAIN | 2018 TOUR
stage design, ART DIRECTION, & 3d animations
"Shawty, whatchu think 'bout that?"
"Large 3D-graphics of well-endowed dancers and lowriders bathed T-Pain in a Miami Vice glow of teals, aquas and pinks. He also often went off script with soulful vocal runs, dazzling the crowd. T-Pain took a risk and came out on top, delivering an uncomplicated display of joy." -KQED
The legendary T-Pain. The discography of this performer was beyond anything we had experienced before. With at least 30 songs in his setlist, we were faced with the challenge of creating a live-show that fully encompassed the rapid-fire rollercoaster that was a T-Pain live show.
From anthropomorphic Dodge Challengers, to melting jello booties, to poppin' bottles of "T-pagne," our animation team created a set of visuals that pivoted the 90's autotune break-out star into an elevated, contemporary space where the party has never ended, but is in fact, just getting started.
For Bonnaroo, we designed a 4 channel LED stage design that sought to full encompass the audience into the hood surrealism world of T-Pain. According to the festival, it was the biggest turn-out they had seen at the tent in almost a decade.
