New Look to our Visual Loops

After much consideration, it was decided to give a new look to the Sensebellum Visual Loops channel. All the videos are still Creative Commons and free to use and abuse as you'd like.

Freaknight 2013, getting the live feel

We were contacted by USC to provide projection mapping across 2 buildings near the entrance to their yearly event, "Freaknight", a Halloween meets Carnival ritual that's been going on for 17 years now.

From the start it was clear that the production needed an original touch - one that matched the look and feel of the established aesthetic. In the interest of a creative approach, simple logistics, and accurate modeling, a live scene was built to act as a small scale version of the architecture. From this point we located some bugs, worms, crickets, ants, and even a tarantula - all in the real - to crawl over, through, across, and in between the building models. Extrapolate this content to the digital realm and then came some post production to get the look. A few weeks later and there is a two-story spider crawling over the face of buildings; intricately interacting in a very real and physical way with each window and ledge.
