We designed an experiential multimedia showpiece for Nashville International Airport’s brand new Grand Lobby. The digital vignettes pay homage to Nashville’s legacy with original live action and advanced computer-generated imagery (CGI) that celebrate the city’s nature, sports culture and nightlife.

"a true showstopper as passengers enter the airport's new grand lobby." –The Tennessean


Under the mantra good times await your return, we brought a sense of identity to the airport by offering travelers a visceral memento of Nashville and its surrounding landmarks to impart a lasting impression of the iconic city. The work will be the cornerstone of the airport’s vision to maintain BNA as a world-class facility and accommodate a record-breaking 23 million expected annual passengers.


We produced hours of original video content from over 20 locations and institutions within Nashville and surrounding Tennessee areas, including Reelfoot Lake, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Clingmans Dome, the Nashville Guitar Company, and Delgado Guitars. The experience is adapted to the time of day and the passenger’s journey, creating a custom experience from day to night.


Passengers traveling through Nashville will be greeted by over a dozen vignettes experienced as massive digital postcards. Spanning two panoramic screens each 70ft wide at 24K combined resolution, hours of fantastical video capsules pay homage to Nashville’s legacy that enchant travelers and engage them with their surroundings. Highlights include City of Lights, a vibrant scene from the city’s cultural epicenter, Broadway Street and Nashville by Night, an aerial journey through the city’s downtown skyline. Here, the journey begins– even before stepping into the airplane.
