“The Performer” follows a curious being on a journey of discovery through a powerful dance performance and point-cloud animations. Using volumetric filmmaking techniques, we wanted to capture the human spirit in it’s purest, faceless form. Created using DepthKit, a software that records and visualizes 3D depth data captured on an Xbox Kinect v1. Featuring former Nederland Dans Theater Dancer, Jon Ole Olstad. This piece meshes multiple artistic disciplines with interactive technology. The concept was inspired by the music.
