Introducing award-winning online video – Musician Mind-Reading produced by Twomanycreatives.

First, we invited the Ligeti Quartet to a special recording session. Each musician was fitted with a mindwave headset. Then, we converted their brainwaves into CVS data, that we used to visualise their thought patterns as they played.

The Brief

The Ligeti Quartet is probably the less classic classical quartet ever. The music they play (from György Ligeti) is quintessentially experimental and extremely complicated to perform.

The Idea

We made a music clip where we showed exactly how their music feels. By using simple off-the-shelf brainwave monitors, we’ve been able to read the brainwaves of the quartet as they play the track. We used those data and treated them as a beautiful visualisation of the performance.

The Brief About the Innovative Campaign

CIVIC challenged Red Paper Heart to create an art installation inspired by the HBO series, Game of Thrones. They were asked to convey Arya Stark’s journey in becoming an assassin, starting with her wooden training sword from Season 1 of the series.

Arya’s character and image changed dramatically over the last 5 seasons. Early on, they became interested in the idea of fans changing their own image by their sword training.

In the experience, fans get their profile photographed in a special photo studio, then step on stage to wield a replica of Arya’s training sword. Facing a 10×10 foot projection, fans swing the sword to try and hit targets. Once hit, the targets spill artwork onto the canvas including blades, dragon claws, raven feathers and direwolf fur. As the artwork grows and becomes dense, fans reveal a portrait of themselves which is a formation from the elements of the show.

With a unique generative art system, it translates the physics of sword play into an artful self portrait. To accomplish this, thy embedded wooden swords with wireless gyroscope and accelerometer sensors that measure the trajectory and velocity of each swing. As the user slices the on-screen targets, projected artwork spills out based on the swing. Each piece of art rotates, scales and moves in the particular way the user swings their sword. The custom graphics engine, written in the C++ framework Cinder, blends both 2d and 3d visual elements- an inspiration by Game of Thrones. The user’s own photo masks this 3D world, building up an artwork that fills in their own portrait. Finally, they upload the final artwork to a server and it is available for sharing the moment a user steps off stage.

To play on the aspect of adaptation, which is the main theme of the production company, I visualised it by having a shape morph into different primitives to progress through a path of obstacles.

Innovative Movie Promo Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Part IV promotes the movie, Alice through the Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror” in an innovative and interactive way. This movie promo is the Canopus Winner at the 2016 Vega Digital Awards. 

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Company : Part IV

Project Title : Alice Through The Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror”

Client: Walt Disney Pictures

Category : Innovative / Experimental

Country : United States

The Challenge

Disney challenged us to find a way to promote “Alice Through The Looking Glass”. We conceived a magical mirror, using cutting edge face-tracking technology to transform anyone into a beloved Alice character. We built custom kiosks that traveled all over the world, including a two-month residency at Disneyland. Users were emailed a photo & Instagram video of their experience.

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

‘Walt Disney Pictures challenged us to find a way to promote their new film, Alice Through The Looking Glass, at the 2015 D23 Convention in Anaheim, CA.  We had a 40′ x 40′ space, a blank canvas to build our own little corner of Wonderland.

The Idea

We conceived a magical mirror, using cutting edge face tracking technology to instantly transform anyone into a beloved Alice character.

Our goal was to not just use a simple 2D overlay, but to fully transform the user with both makeup and 3D elements, tracked perfectly in real-time.  And of course, to create a cool shareable takeaway from the experience.’

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

The Execution

‘We began by designing a whimsical Wonderland inspired space with plush grass, cobblestone pathways, mushrooms, topiaries, and costumes from the film.  To best accommodate the anticipated line for this attraction at D23, we decided to build four of our Wonder Mirror kiosks to minimize wait time.

Each kiosk had a larger mirror with a duplicate feed placed on the outside so friends, family, and passing fans could stand and watch same the magical results from users’ screens inside the kiosks.

With our designs completed, we partnered with Premiere Displays to build and finesse our vision into a reality.  The physical build for Alice began with dozens of artisans hand crafting our little corner of Wonderland.’

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Innovative | Alice through the Looking Glass "Wonder Mirror" Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

We quickly learned that this style of a fully immersive face tracking execution hadn’t really been accomplished before. There were several examples of just 2D texture wrapping and 3D paste-on head replacement, but nothing as robust and transformation we were envisioning.

After several months down the rabbit hole in research and development with multiple cameras, trackers, and hardware solutions, we decided to build own custom software to interface with raw facial tracking data.

This custom application allowed us to position our occluded 3D elements and pair them with our texture wrap makeup effects. Overall, this creates a true first-to-market experience. It is a revolutionary progression of a traditional “photo booth,” now truly allowing real-time augmented transformation.’

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

La Mer Part 2 Online Advertising by Psyop Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Director Marie Hyon on creating for Estee Lauder:

“In the spirit of Albert Einstein, we wanted to create a film that will challenge our imagination. We love the story of Dr. Max Huber and the myth behind his journey to find the cure to heal his burnt skin. We believe the myth is more powerful than the reality. Our film focuses on the poetic legendary tale rather than the reality and its facts. Besides, reality leaves nothing to the imagination. For the first La Mer film, we focused on introducing Dr. Max Huber and telling his story. For the follow up film, we focus mainly on the fascination of exploring the unknown.

La Mer Part 2 Online Advertising by Psyop Wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

Curiosity is the key to staying young. And the wonders of nature inspire the curious ones to seek out its secrets, and question what is beyond or beneath the surface. La Mer Part 2 is inspired by light and the transforming effect it has to surfaces. This element of change is magical to us, from the spectacular colorful displays of a sunrise, to the northern lights, to the illumination of light on the surface of water or ice and even beyond the surface.
