John Mayer Tour Creates Window Into The World

John Mayer Tour Stage Design and Screen Visuals

The goal of the video content was to create something very tactile and theatrical so that the physical set was at the heart of everything creatively. “Video allowed us to enhance, extend, and light this in ways that went beyond what was possible with scenery alone,” describes video creative director Damian Hale. “At times, we wanted to deliberately blur the lines between lighting and video so we used a lot of color washes and glows which, when combined with the real lighting, really brought the set itself to life and allowed us to celebrate both the scenic elements and the players and instruments on stage rather than distracting from them.”
