Book, lyrics, and music by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Adapted for Stepworks by Erik Loyer
Made with Stepworks
The dense, multi-vocal virtuosity of Hamilton: An American Musical was a perfect match for Opertoon's creative tool for rhythmic storytelling, Stepworks.
Stepworks made it easy to render each character’s words in a different color and area of the screen, in a format dubbed the “multi-channel lyric video.” And even though Stepworks lyric videos are more accurate that most — down to the syllable — they don’t take more time to produce, since they’re performed live. Multi-channel lyric videos for “Non-Stop” and “Hamilton” received over two million views on YouTube and Facebook, and fans even started using Stepworks to make their own versions for their favorite songs.
