Making Elton John's 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' Virtual Reality Videos
Rus Anderson performs the role of Elton John for his official 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' world tour promo videos & photos.
In May 2017, Rus was contacted by Elton John & David Furnish who brought him to Los Angeles to film as Elton's body double from the 70's, for a cutting edge visual experience shot in Virtual Reality, including the main promo video for Elton's final tour. Working with the production company Spinifex, the team magically recreated moments such as Elton's US debut gig at The Troubadour, Hollywood in 1970, as well as his LA Dodgers Stadium concert in 1975.
Rus' performance debuted via livestream to a worldwide audience from Gotham Hall, Manhattan on January 24th 2018, when Elton officially announced the 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour.
Here you can view the main video, as well as the 'making of' documentary. Below are also a series of behind the scenes photos of the project so far. Enjoy!
