Create a live animated music video using motion capture technology
The team are all here at the Sydney Opera House to create a new music video, but there’s one key role missing….the director! Luckily our students have shown up online to take on this important role.
With the help of the motion capture performer, the students are guided through making the artistic decisions to create a music video. They will engage in movement activities to uncover the story they want to tell and decide how they can capture that story through visual storytelling.
Students will be introduced to all the key people in their team. They will experience how to create a dance piece, both from the production and creative perspectives.
At the end, we’ll capture your best moves, fusing technology with creative play. But will their music video sink or soar? The creative team will decide!
