Summary

The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève rewards the finest watch creations of the year.

Under the theme “Time in the cinema”, we created a show combining dance and 3D animation, a leap into the future marked by the inevitable epic sci-fi film “Star Wars” created by George Lucas.

Darth Vader, the head of the imperial army, is embodied on stage by a dancer. His 3D clone, as well as the imperial troops are projected on big screens behind him and animated by the rhythm of his motion.

To achieve this animation, we captured the choreography of the dancer and we then animated the 3D characters. The dancer reproduces the same choreography on stage with amazing accuracy.
