I’m sitting on the couch having a chat with my buddy Tupac Martir the other day on Facebook (Tupac is the guy behind Satore Studio in London) about making video content on the iPad , and he sends me a little sketch video he made in a program called Brushes on his iPad. It was what looked like a ghost having a conniption fit all around the room, I certainly thought it was pretty interesting. No big deal or grand monumental earth-shattering brain convulsion took place or anything over this video – until I saw this video:
It all comes together as far as art goes — the images I saw from Tupac’s iPad weeks before turned into the background for Porter’s Host of A Ghost, live at Vive Latino 2013! This is the band Porter at this year’s Vive Latino 2013 show. Tupac and his team at Satore Studio created the content and the lighting for Porter’s set, and it was awesome! Here’s Cuervos/No Te Encuentro by Porter at Vive Latino 2013, visuals and lighting by Tupac and Satore Studio:
You have to give it up to Tupac and his crew for the intermingling of color temperatures on this set — the cold, sterile whites from the arcs and the video mixed in with the warm incandescent PAR tones creates an underlying tone of depth that really comes through during the solid color frames from the screen images. I love this!
I found out a bit more about the rig that Tupac was using for the show and about his illustrious team of magic makers…
