BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA Released on Disney+

September 14, 2022

“The whole team at OnSight were really supportive at creating an effective solution for this grade. They put a lot of effort into researching and facilitating the process, choosing Streambox which allowed us to remote grade live and direct to Korea in real time, which proved an effective way to collaborate with the director and producer. It has been a pleasure working with them!” – Steve Atkins, Colourist. 

A surprise launch to mark the annual Disney+ Day celebration last week has seen BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA released to watch on Disney+! BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA, is an electrifying concert film from South Korean boy band, BTS, who have captured the hearts of millions of fans globally since their 2013 debut. 

Directed by Sam Wrench and Jun-Soo Park, the film features the Grammy-nominated music group’s exciting performances at Los Angeles Sofi Stadium in November and December 2021, including hit songs “Dynamite”, “Butter” and “Permission to Dance”. Following the pandemic, BTS: Permission to Dance on Stage – LA was the first time that the band had performed for a live audience in two years, making these performances additionally special for the band and their fans.  

The film is a Disney+ and Hybe collaboration, Produced by Sejin Park and Jiwon Yoon, with Paul Caslin as Consulting Producer. Executive Producers are Jordan Barrow, Jesse Ignjatovic, Jared P. Morell and Evan Prager. OnSight had the pleasure of delivering post production for this concert film from global superstars, BTS, overseen by Post Producer Joana Coelho, with colour by Steve Atkins. 

Meeting Remote Challenges During Post Production:

With the BTS production team being in South Korea, this created a new challenge for us in order to ensure client input in the online process. To resolve this, we colour graded 4K Dolby Vision, in real time, streamed live from London to the BTS team in South Korea using StreamBox. This was vital for the project, allowing the team to work both efficiently and effectively across time zones.

OnSight’s Senior Online Editor Adam Sample completed the finishing process, with Alfie Mitchell as Edit Assistant and Danielle Kidd as Digital Asset Coordinator.

Given BTS’ recent announcement of a temporary hiatus to explore other projects and solo material, this film is likely the best opportunity to see one of the band’s performances for a while and is not one to be missed!
