This was my sixth opportunity of being part of Jvan Morandi’s Placing Shadows crew, tasked with creating UV maps, animations, editing & motion graphics for French electronic pioneer legend, Jean-Michel Jarre.
This project was extra special as we were translating many of the awesome animations and effects from the Electronica World tour of 2016-2017 and taking them into the world of Virtual reality for this 2020 New Years Eve party.
The live show combined life-like concert visuals in VR with a real live studio performance. Created, designed and produced in record-breaking 3-months, the 50 minute mixed-media project gathered a team of one hundred artists and technicians to recreate Notre-Dame de Paris and achieve a masterpiece blending an array of formats and skills.
So far, the concert has been seen by 75 Million viewers and virtual partygoers from around the world, taking in viewing figures from multiple platforms including VR platforms VRChat and Oculus Venues, national and international TV and radio, social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter.
Du bon temps!
