Thesis Project: Motion Tracked Dance Video in Virtual Reality about the Myth of the Soulmates

I'm entering into the last year of my animation education at the University of Southern California and therefore I get the opportunity to dive into a year long project of my choosing. They tell us to make the project we want to make, not the one we think we 'should' make. I look at my past experience with motion tracking projected visuals with a kinect on dancers live and decide to push it one step further. Instead of tracking visuals live, we can prerender motion tracked visuals onto dancers to tell a linear abstract narrative inspired by Plato's Soulmate myth. All of this happening around you in 360 degrees. #immersive
