For the track "Come Down" of mischgewebe's debut album "Violet" I made an animated musicvideo. We decided to record motion capture data, which I could later work creatively with. For that matter we collaborated with the Zurich University of the Arts, which let us record the motion data in their Immersive Arts Space. During the recording sessions the professional dancer, Sarah Keusch, perfomed choreographed movements, which where captured.
From that point on I could bring all the data into houdini and begin with the lookdevelopment phase. The goal was to find an appealing design language for the video to convey the songs subject.
