Our Video team takes the lead when driving the moving visuals forward for official music videos, visualizers, in-venue content, on the streets, BTS and editorial storytelling along with any social campaigns. They are supported by an in-house production team who work side-by-side the Video Producers for production, shooting and editing needs.
Our digital team has specialized digital designers and video animators who focus on bringing all video and art branding to life on the digital stage. They work closely with the Digital Marketing team, collaborating on the overall digital strategy, experiences for websites, webstores and email marketing. They also create promotional assets which include static, animation, lenses and social content to support all aspects of the artist roll out across Marketing, Digital Marketing, Commerce, Touring and Sales.
