American Express Unstaged

Project Description

As part of Usher’s “American Express Unstaged” performance, Surround was commissioned by Momentum Worldwide to create a 10-minute film on Usher and his creative process for making his album “Looking For Myself.” The film follows Usher as he embarks on his most ambitious album to date–carefully crafting songs in the studio, leading a team of talented contributors, evolving and refining his dance choreography, the list goes on… We cannot imagine that any other musician works harder than Usher. The man just does not stop.
