2018 James F. McGillin

    Jay Z

    Client: Willo Perron

    Role: Motion Designer / Editor 

    I was commissioned by Creative Director Willo Perron to execute motion designs for Jay Z live performances. 

    In Jay Z's Barclay Concert,  Willo envisioned simple shapes revealing scenes of the streets Brooklyn and New York City. I was given hours of beautifully shot 4K Red footage to bring the designs to life.

    The second piece was for the "Legends of Summer" tour with Justin Timberlake. 

    This was the stage for the Barclays show (Left).  I did all my motion design remotely in LA and sent finals to Willo's team in Brooklyn, NYC.  I never met Jay Z until about a year later when I worked with his wife.
