Karni & Saul animate tour visuals for Katie Melua

// Featured, News


Bafta-nominated animators Karni & Saul have teamed up with Katie Melua to provide the visuals for her UK & European tour. This is the second time the duo have worked with Katie, after animating the award winning music video for ‘Perfect World’ in 2016. Katie is joined by a cast of stellar musicians, as well as members of Gori Women’s Choir who featured on the silver-certified 2016 album In Winter for all shows.

After the success of the 28 performances with the Gori Women’s Choir in 2016, Katie wanted to implement something new for this tour. Working together with animators Karni and Saul, they have transformed the performance into a wonderland of dynamic lighting and visuals, marrying the music and visuals to become a single entity.

Katie worked with Karni & Saul in 2016 for her music video Perfect World, which won awards for Best Animation from industry-leading events including the UKMVAs, and the Berlin Music Video Awards. This however is Karni & Saul’s first time producing concert visuals.

Adding visuals to live concerts is a fine art, so creating the right types of film content to accompany the music requires very special sensibility and level of care. I’m always trying to strive for a more enriching, visually-enticing, and immersive live experience for the audience. I could think of no better creative designers than Karni & Saul to bring the wintery sounds of Gori Women’s Choir together with our world-class rhythm section – weaving everything together with a sense of marvel and wonderment.
