Bruce Springsteen-Live In Dublin was taped during the final three shows of Springsteen’s tour to support his album, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions.
Ravitz had been the designer for the live show, which kicked off in May 2006. Although Ravitz designed the show with live I-Mag screen video in mind, he came in and gave the show a complete tune-up for the high definition taping. “Bruce and I had many conversations about cinematic styles, and decided on an extremely dramatic approach. The result was warm and dimensional. Bruce also enjoyed moving in and out of the tightly focused lights to somewhat control his visible presence in the frame.”
The show was initially aired on PBS in June 2006, and was quickly released as a DVD following a worldwide theatrical screening in digitally equipped cinemas.
Live In Dublin was one of four PBS specials Ravitz designed for the 2006 Pledge Drive. The other programs featured Irish choral group, Anuna, the rock band, Styx, and inspirational speaker, Rabbi Irwin Kula.
