THE CUTTING EDGE IN PROJECTOR-BASED DISPLAY
At visit to Scalable Display Technologies
BE PREPARED TO HAVE YOUR EYES OPENED!
A visit to the Scalable Studio will provide guests with the opportunity to see a wide variety of Scalable applications. Featured during this SMPTE meeting will be tours of the only independent motion capture studio in the Northeast, a 3D active stereoscopic CAVE with a state-of-the-art head tracking system, and a 12' wide interactive Huddlewall designed for group collaboration.
With Jason Edmonds, Motion Capture / Mocap Supervisor at Scalable Display Technologies,
While many animators take up performance to enhance their understanding of movement, a combined lifelong study of wushu, stunt skating, dance and performance drove me to 3d animation. On an internship at Nickelodeon in the mid-90s, I was exposed to the first motion capture puppet on live TV and was immediately hooked. Since then, I have worked with nearly every form of motion capture available. My goal has always been to become a human special effect. The work of Jim Henson, wuxia movies and costume performers led to a perspective that CGI is the new prosthetic make up.
Choreography and animation are one and the same. The real difference is the nature of "happy accidents". Keyframe animation, while beautiful, doesn't allow for multiple takes or improvised performance. That immediacy in communication between director and performer is invaluable. The free flow of creativity permeates an entire team with the mocap stage and production tools at the Scalable Studio in Pembroke.
