WOW Inc commemorates 25 years of creative innovation with bold short film
Produced as part of WOW Inc’s 25th Anniversary Exhibition Project, ‘Contour’ combines volumetric capture, stunning visual design by award-winning duo Ryo Kitabatake and Takuma Sasaki, and music by acclaimed producer Max Cooper.
Through the use of bold colours, contrasts and beautifully detailed scenes, Contour depicts and explores human life in the ever-changing, fluctuating and demanding world in which we live… modern life full of information overload and complicated relationships with people and the world.
End to end collaboration
Ensuring WOW had complete creative freedom to work with volumetric assets were created. Artistic lighting was achieved through the use of colour gels which filled the capture space with light to provide directional orange and blue hues. Dimension also used optical motion capture to extract skeletal data from the performances to support the post-production and VFX team.
The Polymotion Stage Capture Studio
The WOW Project was captured on the Polymotion Stage Truck, our state of the art mobile volumetric creation stage. Our Stage is a partnership between MRMC, Nikon, Dimension and Microsoft. Polymotion Stage is a self-contained capture studio that can travel to talent for a variety of content creation purposes. It can be deployed to wherever it’s needed. Videos like WOW are advancing the frontiers of what is possible with volumetric capture and advanced virtual humans in the media and entertainment space.
“We were very lucky to have the chance to work with Dimension and push the limit of expression in the film using volumetric capture. We really appreciate the effort made to create a realistic digital human that went beyond our expectations. It was a thrilling and fun project. Thank you all!“
