The xx Summer 2018 Tour
Client: Luke Halls Studio
Henrique Ghersi: 2D Animation Design
2D animation design for various songs for The xx Tour 2018 in collaboration with Luke Halls Studio, Creative Director Chiara Stephenson and Video Design Associate Charli Davis and the rest of the amazing team (see full credits below).
Based on references provided I designed the gradients showcased in various songs throughout the concert: the gradients are actual filmed bodies keyed over green screen to give them organic and naturalistic movements to juxtapose against the abstract nature of textures and shapes.
For the haunting song “Replica” l designed and animated a post-apocalyptic, nostalgic yet hopeful sun.
Textures animated for various parts of the show superimposed against the dynamic IMAG visuals of the band performing.
