The Outcome

Working closely with Kim Gavin NEWSUBSTANCE devised an aerial sequence that realised the iconic Progress album cover. With water pouring down the walls, this complicated, visual replication acted as the touch point for the emergence of all five members of the band on stage and the introduction of their hit ‘Flood’.
