Behind The Scenes

⸺ Creative Brief

Producer Sophie Fimmer Engel wanted to merge avantgarde music, art, drawing & animation in a series of concerts in the DR Concert Hall. We got the task to make a live animated etruskan dancer controlled by ballerina Jessica Lyall.

⸺ Concept Development

The live animation was projected on to a 15×9 meters tall net across the stage with the dancer performing in the motion capture suit and the Orchestra behind her. This gave the effect of a huge hologram dancing live to the music.
It was programmed in Unreal Engine and the particles and VFX was controlled with a midi controller.

⸺ Equipment

The motion capture suit was a Rokoko Suit 2. And the hologram was projected onto a bobinette fabric.
