Project Description

The theatre and digital media departments of York University in Toronto, Canada, collaborated on a groundbreaking motion-capture and digital effects-enhanced stage production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in March 2013, directed by Alison Humphrey.

Project Breakdown

The production involved live motion capture and onstage particle effects projections based on infrared light tracking. As part of the digital media team, I helped to develop the interactive visual effects for the performances. Specifically, I designed interactive effects that respond to commands from a mouse and keyboard, a MIDI controller and the custom camera infrared-light tracking system.
