WATCH THE DEMO

As a proof of concept, X4 has created a series of fictional show cases, which were put together to show the merge between the digital and real world. Part one of the series was created with the support of Lightpower and Syncronorm. It features a digital big scale EDM event. The over all production design includes a dome structure with several moving truss circles and a floorplan with different floor elevations, canals and bridges. The whole show is designed around the element of water and all the other visual elements like light, video and pyro blend into a harmonious whole.

The whole design work, as well as production was realized in house. Over all 19 virtual cameras were rendered out for the video edit which was done internal on a FinalCut Multicam System. The full audio including the music, the SFX and the mastering was produced in house. Virtual Characters like the robot Marvin were rigged and animated in house and to bring in some real life, the host and DJane Laura was lit, filmed and integrated in an in house studio and a massive animated crowd was created to cheer and applause the performance virtually. Environmentally friendly and sustainable, only three persons worked on site to produce the whole show on a GrandMA3 System with two Processing Units driving 28.723 parameters. This all came together to a visual extravaganza in the virtual world. Enjoy and stay tuned for the next part of the demo which will be released soon!
