The Ether was tasked with creating a branded marketing campaign for the concert of the century. AEG and Goldenvoice wanted to release a series of artist-focused teasers, trailers and social media spots that would build anticipation for their top secret 2016 rock ‘n’ roll mega-festival featuring The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who, all performing together for the first time ever in an epic 3-day music experience.

The moody, artist-specific teasers were created using a variety of styles and techniques from live action to animation. Our team conceptualized, wrote, produced, shot, edited and animated teasers to fit the tone and voice of each individual artist, unified by one bold graphic message: “October.”

For The Rolling Stones we took an iconic image – a Stones record spinning on a turntable – and captured it in one seamless camera move. The needle pops, smoke drifts into frame and “All Down the Line” begins to play. This teaser was all about atmosphere. The sparse scene communicates an effortless cool that’s intrinsic to The Stone’s and their music.
