Coachella, Rolling Loud. Skazka’s animations for Kid Cudi’s headline performances in 2019

Posted in Uncategorized on December 16, 2020 by Matvey Rezanov

In the beginning of 2019 WP & A saw my work online and offered to produce watercolor animation for Kid Cudi’s performance on Coachella 2019. The idea was to create fantastical alien landscapes, designed to match the existing physical volcanoes and rock formations. Skazka’s signature watercolor and ink effects had to be added to bring the landscapes further to life. The deadline was tight and there were a lot of minutes to fill. At the end, it was absolutely surreal to see watercolors traveling from paper to huge screens on Coachella and then Rolling Loud. Here is a video about this amazing experience.

My company Skazka was approached by venerable
Willo Perron & Associates to participate in stage design for Kid Cudi’s performance at Coachella. At the end we created more than 20 minutes of animated content.
It was very satisfying to see the results on the huge screen during Kid Cudi’s smashing performance with his surprise guest, Kayne West .
Here is the Rolling Stones coverage:
