Childish Gambino #PHAROS Behind the Scenes with Microsoft

#PHAROS was one of Donald Glover’s many triumphs in 2016. Now that Awaken, My Love! is out, we know the music premiered back in September from front to back, but that first experience we were lucky to have in that dome in Joshua Tree was one of my most memorable events of the year. (ICYMI, I wrote on it here.)

Today, I see a new video from Microsoft that dives deeper into the making of the show, including all of the technology to experience it in VR and how they made the projections in the first place. Take note of the subtle footage and listen to the Microsoft team talk about the creative process. For any creative process nerds like me, this is pretty fascinating stuff. (And yup, an even closer glimpse at the genius of Donald Glover.)
