Project Description

The Script Greatest Hits Tour 2022

MIRRAD and blinkinLAB produced The Script’s Greatest Hits Tour, creating a multifaceted visual journey celebrating the band’s dynamic past.

After working with MIRRAD on The Script’s three previous arena tours, blinkinLAB were tasked with coming up with a treatment that referenced the band’s album artwork over the years. Moreover, the band themselves specifically wanted to incorporate imagery of their home city of Dublin.

Aiming for the most dynamic design possible, MIRRAD designed a series of cube-shaped screens, which provided full flexibility within a three-dimensional canvas. The team at blinkinLAB fulfilled the brief by using Notch in pre-production and as a real-time 3D tool during the show. On one track, they used Notch to mimic a point cloud effect. On another, they used particle trails and mesh emitters to bring one of the band’s album covers to life.

Fans on social media gave an overwhelmingly positive response, as did those in attendance, with concertgoers approaching the front of house to comment on the high quality of the graphics, which will appear in the backdrop of the band’s latest music video.

“Using real-time software in pre-production was very helpful, as we didn’t need to worry about render times. We were also able to deal with last-minute changes without the headaches of render farms and overnight renders. On one track, we built a world of TV screens that were mapped to the three-dimensional layout of the cubes, and we used Notch to apply live camera feeds to the TV screens. We were also able to reformat these to the output pixel map within Notch, which was invaluable.
