MASTER VISUAL TEXTURES.
CREATE MEMORABLE MOMENTS.
My name is Ezra Cohen. I’ve had the incredible opportunity of working as a professional visuals designer for the past 3 years - crafting visual experiences used on world tours by artists including Anderson Paak, Toby Mac, Kari Jobe, Hillsong United, and more.
So naturally, people are shocked when I tell them that I create the majority of my work without ever opening After Effects.
The truth is - YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE AN ANIMATOR TO CREATE STUNNING TOUR VISUALS AND TEXTURES. In fact, it requires minimal knowledge of animation software (if any at all).
It’s far more about training your eye to see simple assets (shapes, colors, design elements) for what they CAN be and using accessible plugins and techniques to make them your own - in Premiere, Final Cut, and more. When you know how to approach the process, you can easily master massive LED walls - creating memorable moments in concert environments.
BUT THE BEST PART is that these concepts and techniques apply to all types of projects - allowing you to add visual intricacy to your films no matter the genre. In fact, I use them daily to add unique texture to music videos, title sequences, and more!
These tips have helped me strengthen my unique voice as a filmmaker, allowing me to stand out from the crowd and grow my business and my career.
I hope you join me in learning more about this exciting new world of tour visuals!
