LA Nights ft. Jaguar Skills
London’s themed cinema champions, Backyard Cinema, bring their all-singing, all-dancing LA Nights to Camden's Roundhouse: a retro season of experiential cinema complete with 40 tonnes of sand, giant disco balls, palm trees, Slush Puppie cocktails and a musical mash-up set before every screening by star DJ Jaguar Skills. Our brief was to create a dazzling video performance to bring Jaguar Skills' 12-minute megamix to life whilst establishing the sing-along atmosphere of Backyard's screenings. With the tracks ranging from 50s soul classics, through 90s west coast hip hop to the anthemic tunes of some of pop's biggest idols, our challenge was to reinforce the constantly evolving soundscape whilst maintaining a core graphic style. Our creation would go one to be shown to tens of thousands of movie-goers, bringing a taste of LA to a manmade beach at London's world-famous music venue.
