Towers” is the final outcome of two-part film and animation-based seminar.
The first film, A Tale of Three Towers, explores the reciprocity between digitally
generated animations in Maya and physically filmed real objects with the aid of
robot arm-controlled cameras. Advanced rotoscoping techniques are applied to
overlay physical objects into digital environments.
The second film, Chiral Towers, relies on the new-found robot arm-aided filming
skills obtained from the first exercise to expand on compositions
possibilities. A series of dual and triple-channel mirroring sequences are
developed using high precision robot arm-controlled cameras.
