Virtual Metro by Mika Ventura

Here's what you get when you throw Avenue, Quartz Composer, IRMapio, two 10K projectors, a dance company and a whole lot of talent in to a blender:



Creative talent behind all this is Mika Ventura, and he kindly explained more of the details to satisfy your geeky needs:

Geneva dance company Diadé hired us to create a backdrop video for their new show "Metro". The whole backdrop had to look like a metro train, so we built a 9m by 3m screen to project upon. The elements had to be independently triggered : opening of doors, tilting of the metro axis, outside view (through the windows), charting speed, insertion of other elements as vehicles or fake billboards, etc.

The need to use Resolume became obvious really fast, as 80% of the content was created with Quartz Composer, like the 3D metro train or the backdrops charting on different layers. The Resolume interface, with its layer levels and its possibility to directly control Quartz Composer elements offered us the flexibility we needed. More over, we had to use two 10.000 lumens projectors connected to a Mac via a Matrox Triplehead2Go. Using IRmapio, we were able to create a soft edge in no time.

Resolume's structure was set up as such :

layer 1 : forground elements, tv noise, flames, smoke
layer 2 : QC metro controlled by slider parameters (published input splitters in QC)
layer3 : QC backdrop and some video loops for the subway station
Here are a few pictures :
