Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life

Underwater Motion Capture

Here’s a fun project I worked on that it is likely you have never seen because the only place you can see it is in a casino in Macau. It is a virtual aquarium with realistic looking Mermaids swimming towards the audience, interacting and then swimming away. In order to help achieve the effect Falcon Treehouse’s own Cecil Magpuri enlisted my help in producing the world’s first underwater Blue Screen/Motion Capture shoot to capture both the beautiful images of the real live mermaids as they swam underwater as well as the realistic movement of their “tails” in order to animate them in Post.

Take a look at the finished result
