Cars, explosions, and death-defying stunts! What’s not to love about the wildly successful film franchise, the Fast and Furious.
Now, after five years of careful planning and preparation, the franchise’s most iconic scenes are recreated in-front of a live audience in stadiums around the world for Fast & Furious Live. An epic global arena show where live action seamlessly blends with projection mapped content as the action literally bursts from the screen and onto the stage.
Kate Dawkins Studio – already with a great pedigree for creating content for spectacular live shows, was responsible for the creative direction and art direction, laying out the vision for the shows projection content which heavily referenced the films but took on a more stylised, graphical, game aesthetic for this show environment.
dandelion + burdock, mapping specialists and longtime collaborators with Kate Dawkins Studio, managed the complex and creative challenge of devising the projection content and 3D animation.
The projection mapping, a key factor of this show, allowed the creative partnership to create ever-changing environments from a neon-lit downtown Tokyo to a street scene at night in Miami. These living sequences interact directly with the live action and stunts to create a dynamic, fast-paced and awe-inspiring show.
The show, with an opening appearance from Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel, premiered at London’s O2 arena to a packed house, before heading off to Europe and beyond over the next five years.
