The Making of Porter’s Visuals for their Vive Latino 2013 Performance

So Tupac and Kenji from Satore Studio finally posted what we were all waiting for on the content side of the world: THE MAKING OF THEIR PORTER VISUALS from ViveLatino 2013!!!

From the Vimeo page, the bolding is mine:

In March 2013, a well known indie band “PORTER” came back to play again after 5 years. They decided to make a memorable show for their fans, a show to thank for all the waiting. They called Tupac Martir (a mexican visual designer who lives in London) to design the show. Tupac together with Kenji Ikenaga (mexican filmmaker) and Fabiola Ruiz Ortega ( editor and post producer) made the visuals for the show. This little documentary shows the creative and technical process behind this show. How they made the visual content for the comeback of Porter. This is a testimony of this work. I hope you enjoy it and live your coments about this work. Thanks PS.-Sorry for the translate you will find it inaccurate but made with the interest to let you know how we worked this project.

Not only do we get to see the video by two of the most creative people of our current time, but we get to enjoy the hilarious translation, too!  Check this out, then check out PORTER’s performance at ViveLatino 2013!

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!
