Summary

We were contacted by the Swiss artist, Quentin Lannes, to capture movements of boxers in action for his fiction project.

The Next Round is a fiction that questions the practices of the body (here in sport and more specifically in boxing) in the era of virtual reality devices. A boxer whose movements are recorded by motion capture, fights a numerical simulation of another boxer, present in another physical space, hundreds of kilometers from him.

Summary

While playing in an attic, Teo and Leonie stumble upon a necklace with extraordinary powers that allows them to travel through time and space. They are propelled through history and meet Leonardo da Vinci who attempts to bring them back to their time by all means. The three of them will have unbelievable adventures together, crossing paths with legendary characters, great explorers, notorious savants and ancient civilizations. They meet the greats of this world and take us behind the scenes of well known events as they truly unfolded, revealing some of History’s greatest secrets. The implications of their journeys take them further than they ever could have imagined.

For the trailer of this TV series created and realized by Kenzan SA, we performed the full performance capture of the characters (body and face), as well as the retargeting of animations on the 3D characters.

Summary

We created four 3D animations presenting the different external fixators of Gexfix. For each product, the animation shows the possible movements a patient can do when equipped with such a device.

To create these animations, movements were mainly recorded by motion capture. The 3D models of fixators and skeleton were provided by Gexfix.
