Workshop Overview

The day will consist of two sessions

Motion Capture

Motion Capture is the process of recording the movement of objects or people. In this session we will explain the theory and science behind the cameras to give you an idea of how Motion Capture works. Afterwards, up to two volunteers may suit-up to help demonstrate the system in action.  

The theoretical overview will be presented through a brief presentation where you will be introduced to how Motion Capture AND LIVE ACTION wire work applies to several areas of study while engaging in a physical demonstration of the MOTION CAPTURE system itself.

Visual Effects

Visual Effects are the processes by which imagery is created and/or manipulated outside the context of a live- action shot. This session will explain how visual e ects may be used to enhance a simple scene and how they are used across and within New Media.

In a live demonstration, we will showcase a Visual EFFects method known as Chroma Keying. Volunteers may position themselves in front of a green screen where they will be recorded through video and see rst-hand how the process is developed.
