The innovative tech behind Fast & Furious Live Europe

Real-time motion tracking system BlackTrax has been used to help bring arena show Fast & Furious Live to venues across the UK and Europe.

The show features a mix of real vehicles and professional drivers with state-of-the-art projections, set design and stunts, recreating some of the series most iconic moments.

The show featured creative art direction from Kate Dawkins Studio, in collaboration with projection design and animation by dandelion + burdock.

The projection mapping allowed the creative partnership to create ever-changing environments from a neon-lit downtown Tokyo to a street scene at night in Miami. These living sequences interact directly with the live action and stunts to create a dynamic live show.

Andrew Gordon, BlackTrax’ director of business development, said: “There are magical things you can do in creating a movie that are almost impossible to recreate for a live event – and that was our challenge with Fast & Furious Live.

“To achieve that level of fan engagement, there is no room for any potentially distracting error in a fast-paced and potentially unpredictable show – and that’s what Blacktrax achieves to perfection.”

The company has experience in working with projectors, camera, robotic lights, media, audio and other equipment. Its systems have been employed in over 8,000 shows globally, from the recent Queen + Adam Lambert tour through to the Eurovision Song Contest.
