Summary

We participated to the creation of a show combining dance and 3D animation where a crowd of virtual characters were embodied on stage by a dancer. His 3D clones were projected on three big screens behind him and animated by a choreography that was motion captured before the show. The dancer had to synchronize on stage with the 3D animation to achieve the illusion.

This show was created for the re-branding of Mauritius Telecom.

Summary

3D In Motion (3DIM) was installed during the Caprices Festival 2015 in Crans-Montana. The setup combines motion capture and 3D visualizations. During the concerts, an interaction zone allows people to dance and their movements to be captured and converted into 3D graphics in real time. The generated visuals are then projected on a huge screen in the concert room.

The people could choose among six different 3D scenarios. Their individual performances were recorded and could be downloaded after the event.

Summary

3D In Motion (3DIM) is a system of capture, visualization and sonification of movements in real time. This experimental setup allows to create and control 3D graphics in real time with the entire body, as well as to generate sounds from the body motion. The user’s movements are tracked by a motion capture system (Vicon, Xsens or Kinect) and instantaneously converted into sound events and graphic content, which allows you for instance to sculpt in 3D with your body. Your movements are thus transformed into an interactive instrument while immersed in a surround sound environment.

This framework is dedicated to the scene and to real time performances. It can be used for DJ nights, dance performances or other artistic projects. The interaction can be done alone or with others.

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.
