Fireplay is a full service, multidisciplinary creative and design studio. Nick Whitehouse, the co-founder of Fireplay, noted that Timberlake asked Fireplay to help produce and conceptualize the visual creative elements for this year's Super Bowl LII halftime performance, thanks to their successful 12-year collaborative history together.
Whitehouse added that Fireplay was stoked to be a part of his creative team, where they worked with the halftime show's designers and producers; moreover, they lead the charge for the actual staging, the video content, lighting, and special effects.

For this year's halftime show, Timberlake had asked Fireplay to assist in the creation of a visual setting for every musical moment. The Fireplay team provided an intimate laser club setting, a sprawling mirror solar array, to a party in the stands with the fans, thus creating a landscape from each musical moment, which allowed Timberlake to shine as a live performer.
One of the highlight moments in his halftime show was his moving tribute to Prince. Fireplay was a part of that team that helped create that epic moment with TImberlake.
