Motion Capture

“Pens”, Amnesty International.

TBWA Paris, has produced a powerful and visually stunning spot for Amnesty International. Directed by   and co-produced by Troublemakers.tv the full CGI two minute commercial uses motion capture to create a fluid piece that epitomizes the potential of your signature. “Pens” highlights the voice that each person can bring about in the birth of a social movement. The animated short builds through visuals of protest, followed by oppression with a voice over that punctuates the power of freedom and liberty. As the short reaches it’s end it concludes with the words “your signature is more powerful than you think”.  The look is unforgettable, with a cool black and white finish, and a production quality that hooks you and keeps you watching until the very end.

What a Visual Treat. JL Design and Korb for CCTV.

Korb

It really is a great time to be a visual designer. Thanks to advances in computer technology an software, we are experiencing a true renaissance in visual design. The four indents below for CCTV’s Documentary Channel are a great example of what I am talking about. This kind of visualization would have been almost impossible to get a decade ago. Lithuanian based Korb, working with Taiwan based JL Design  took three months to create these spots, each of which is only 10 to 1 seconds long. Mo-cap was done on site in Taipei by Korb, with the final VFX work was done in Vilnius.

“Motion sculptures for CCTV Documentary Channel is a digital metaphor of phenomenal blinks and moments that life consists of. In four Idents we follow a visual performance of organic and vital substance, animated using data of actors movements.

Dents visualize four different themes. Motion sculpture of steel reflects old Chinese adage that true power is mastering yourself. Youthful energy of dancers evolve into beautiful organic sculpture. Colorful happiness is the engine of father’s and his daughter’s joy. Two lovers visualize fragility and vitality of love in the last Ident.”

“Made by Humans”, Hyundai’s Vision Hall.

Here is a little eye candy to start off Monday morning. The video below is from Hyundai’s Vision Hall. The piece is entitled “Made by Humans”. It features a 16k video loop, and a 36 channel Iosono surround sound soundtrack. I wish there was more info on the engine behind the visualization. The video was created by translating motion capture data of a dancer which was converted to sweeping animations via proprietary software.
