Move for Art
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.

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.

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 reproduced the same choreography on stage with amazing accuracy.
