New Tandem Digital website features Rush, Neil Peart videos
Tandem Digital is the company that produces many of the custom concert videos that are seen playing in the background at Rush concerts. They also are responsible for designing Neil Peart's website at NeilPeart.net. This past week they launched a newly-designed website at tandemdigital.com which features several examples of the work they did for Rush including the introduction video to 2112 and the three-camera video of Red Barchetta, both from the Snakes & Arrows tour. From the website:
For the Red Barchetta video we mounted three cameras in the back of a pickup truck and drove around California for a couple of days, driving down the center line of the road to get nicely framed shots. Once the material was in the computer we reversed the action so it looked like we were shooting forwards.
They also have some great videos in the Neil Peart section of their site:
In 2005 Neil Peart hired Tandem Digital to produce his first original website, NeilPeart.net. Since then we have worked on three concert videos, which play during his drum solos. For the last two RUSH tours we animated a 3D drumming robot called "The Percussor", who can be found depicted in the pages of the novel that accompanies the latest RUSH album Clockwork Angels.
You can check out the Rush Concert Videos, the Neil Peart Videos and the
Neil Peart Drum videos online at tandemdigital.com. They also have most of the videos available on their YouTube channel. Thanks to John atCygnus-X1.net for the heads up.
