Students’ motion visuals hit main stage

Student-generated motion visuals will put crowds into a digital daze when they hit the main stage at Australia’s biggest dance music festival – Lunar Electric.

For the past few months 23 TAFE Queensland screen and media students from the Coomera campus have spent countless hours executing 10-15 minutes of mesmerizing visuals for line-up standout, Brooklyn.

Diploma of screen and media student, Jack Taylor said he never expected to be working on such a high-profile real world project.

“I knew TAFE Queensland offered real world experiences as part of the course, but I never expected to be creating motion visuals that would be displayed on the main stage of a major festival,” said Jack.

Though they are not yet finished, the 17-year-old said the final visuals will be a progressive feast for the eyes while aligning with Brooklyn’s brand.

“The crowd will be taken on a journey flooded with colourful psychedelic trances, futuristic worlds and cartoon realms that people won’t want to take their eyes off,” said Jack.

“We have crafted synthwave, retro and science fiction worlds catered to Brooklyn’s style, but the final visuals will be a blending of these realms, creating something unique and original to transport Brooklyn and her fans to another world they won’t want to leave,” he said.

Meanwhile, some students also spent time in the studio with Brooklyn to capture mini motion clips on a green screen to be rendered into the visuals.

These short clips include striking costume changes, various use of props including a Harley-Davidson and choreographed movements.

Together, Jack said the class will have collectively spent hundreds of hours refining and developing the visuals.

“It will feel amazing to know that the hours myself and the rest of the team have put into this project will be shown to such a wide audience. It will give us significant exposure and the experience has enabled us to refine our craft for a real world client,” he said.

Brooklyn, who is one of the biggest female DJs in the country provided students with a brief and mood board before meeting the class on-campus to see some of their initial concepts.

“I was really impressed with the student’s ideas and loved the direction they were heading. Together we talked through my brand, the colours and what elements I’d like to see, I am super excited to see the final product,” said Brooklyn.

“These visuals will enhance my performance and compliment a few other top-secret things I have planned for the set.”

After Lunar Electric Festival, Brooklyn plans to take the visuals with her on tour to nightclub LED screens around the country.

The student’s enticing display can be seen during Brooklyn’s set at Lunar Electrical Music Festival at The Spit in Main Beach later this year.
