Alan Walker x Au/Ra x Torine
(Live Performance) | NIO Day

“From the moment we got the brief from NIO and contacted Alan Walkers team, to the day we wrapped shooting with 80six in the UK was under 3 weeks, we developed the creative, built the scenes and shot the concert at an incredible pace. This was made possible by a coordinated effort from Super Bonfire's global network of artists and a close partnership with disguise and 80six. This would not have been possible without these partners, and we look forward to doing more with them in the future.” 
Jason Kirby CEO of Super Bonfire

A Viral XR performance by SBF
This international tour de force production with teams spanning across the UK, Malaysia and China, came to life in just eight days of production, prompted by a brief that asked to create a mixed reality ‘alternative universe’ in line with Alan Walker's disruptive cinematic vision.

The ambitious xR performance boasting more than 3 million views on Youtube, skillfully merged 80six's leading extended reality expertise and experience in the integration of real-time technologies with Super Bonfire's creative team in delivering high-value multimedia content.

Realized in collaboration with artists Au/ra and Torine for NIO day, the live performance features five songs in surrealist 3D virtual sets with interactive mixed reality elements such as emerald planets with AR drones, an icy rotating Moon embossed with the artist’s logo and other ethereal graphic elements synchronized to Alan’s beats.

Technical Aspect
Filmed at Virtual Production Studios by 80six in a single day, the artists performed on the largest xR stage built to date by the 80six team, with a 15m wide ROE Black Marble LED floor structure, and 5m height surrounding walls by ROE Black Onyx HDR. The LED screens run on Brompton Technology and ROE Evision EV4 for image processing.

The award-winning technology suite supporting the xR workflow was powered by disguise media servers: VX4s and RX2, Unreal Engine, Notch paired with the optical camera tracking system Mo-sys StarTracker and a Technocrane on which the SONY Venice camera was mounted. disguise's ground-breaking virtual zoom allowed to zoom in and out of each scene, shooting in a virtual space largely extended beyond the physical limits of the LED screens. 

80six and Super Bonfire proved that xR technologies can be relied upon to deliver outstanding visual content even with a limited pre-production time whilst avoiding the perils intrinsic to such a new set of immersive technologies.
