Metallica: Through The Never
In August 2012 Metallica embarked on their Full Arsenal tour, staged as part of an upcoming Metallica 3D film ‘Through the Never’ directed by Nimród Antal. Working with KPX Video‘s Marcia Kapustin, I designed video sequences for the show’s LED floor, projection screens and 10 suspended coffins. Working closely with the production team, we used a mixture of live action, 2d and 3d animation to illustrate the themes of 16 songs. The sequences were designed to choreograph tightly with theatrical moments and to work on camera for the 3d film. With the film’s highly anticipated August 2013 release, the live show was described by Rolling Stone’s Denise Sheppard as ‘visually stunning’.
