MAX 2018 Teaser 2
LIGHT: Color, balance, glow, movement, reflection, refraction.
For this year’s Adobe MAX conference, we wanted to combine light and motion to create unique animated stories on the streets of L.A., where MAX is returning after two years. We were inspired by Tao Tajima’s “Night Stroll.” We captured L.A. street scenes in beautiful 8K raw detail, then animated and composited the artist unique art, bringing their work to life.
Michela Picchi is the third artist in the series. Her story released bodies of glowing, technicolor paint onto the LA streets. Some organic, some geometric, both abstract and representational. The simple shapes present themselves as friendly and fluid visitors from a very vibrant planet converging to attend Adobe MAX 2018!
