Summary

We were contacted by Nicolas Vuignier, a Swiss professional freeride skier, for the making of short 3D animations of freestyle jumps. To this aim, we spent a day at Crans-Montana to follow Nicolas on the slopes where we performed his motion capture using our Xsens motion capture suit. His body was also 3D scanned using body scanning technology and as a result the virtual skier was animated.

Summary

We collaborated with the French Ski Federation (FFS) to make 3D scans of their best ski cross athletes. From the 3D bodies, garments are made to measure to maximize the aerodynamics of athletes at downhill. Technical clothing that earned them precious hundredths at the Olympics in PyeongChang 2018.

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

We performed the motion capture for an upcoming mobile game created by Pom Pom Interactive, a joint venture between the Swiss firms of Crown ADAM AG and Roundmesh Interactive.

During this shooting, we captured several cheerleading motion sequences that were integrated into the gameplay of the video game. The moves were performed by Flora Maurer from Eurodancers.

Summary

We were contacted by Kenzan SA for the making of a 3D animation requiring different short captures of professional athletes. To this aim, we spent several days in the Swiss mountains to perform the motion capture of the following winter disciplines: Nordic skiing, alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboard, ice hockey, speed skating and bobsleigh.

The final animation was shown on a spherical 360° display at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 at the Omega House.
