Fahrenheit 451



Here are a couple of images from a rock musical adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 which I did this logo as well as many animated illustrations for, which were projected on a screen behind the stage. It's the reason why I've been away for a bit. It was a really cool project but immensely stressful to work on. In the last few weeks before the premiere I basically worked on it every minute of each day apart from 3 or 4 hours of sleep. Needless to say after the premiere two weeks ago I was a bit burnt out.
Anyway, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. The interaction between the actors and the animation creates a rather unique stage experience.
















The rock musical was directed by G. Mehmert and the music was composed and is performed by the Bananafishbones. It will be running for at least a year at the Schauburg Theatre in Munich. For more information about the production (in German) go here.

Really fantastic, fufu! Your art fits really well onto that scene of devo esque outfitted characters. And I too would love to see a video of this!

Cheers again Aeron and "the monster" (heh, how adequate), I'll make sure to post something when I get my hands on some live footage.
