Twisted Media has proudly been a part of Cookie and Lucious’ ‘Empire’ from the pilot, and we love the roller coaster this show takes us on! From weekly state-of-the-art performance backdrops to social media blasts and corporate takeovers, the talented writers of Empire love to keep Twisted’s graphics team on its toes.

Creating timed and edited full-form musical performances is a tall task on a television timeline, and ‘Empire’ Seasons 1 and 2 were just a warm up! Season 3 brought one of our largest screens behind the artists in Empire’s performance space, and with it came a new challenge. 

Our graphics team not only had to create mind-blowing video backdrops to compliment each of the show’s epic performances, we also had to plan how each graphic would interact onstage as a lighting element. Working closely with Lighting and the Director of Photography, our design team quickly devised a workflow to get every department what they needed on time.

We can’t wait to see what next season has in store. WATCH OUT FOR COOKIE. Just saying…
