We have seen Kinect’s untapped potential. This music video for Catalina is done with Kinect, Kinect Library for Processing, Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects. It looks like that the device is now becoming an additional tool for special effects besides CGI.
The detailed production walkthrough can be found here – even the original source files are available if one would want to venture into this.
Right from Dusseldorf, Germany, this animated short is created by Roman Tönjes & Lukas Loss. It is about the making and selling of a record – from production to distribution.
Animated short by Berlin based artist Andreas Fischer who is a designer slash artist hybrid machine working with spatial time-based media, generative systems and physical manifestations of digital processes:
The video examines the relationship between the simulated image and its physical manifestation. The landscape appearing in the video references one of Fischer´s relief sculptures.
The sculpture is magnified and distorted by the soundscape created by David. As time progresses the landscape becomes increasingly complex and distorted and finally changes its aggregate state to liquid. The shapes of the polygons appear in contrast to the fluid with which they collide.
The 3d model was textured with photos of the physical sculpture, which was carved from a block of mdf with a cnc-miling machine.
