We worked closely with the visual artist Shirazeh Houshiary to produce the arts animation Veil for gallery and museum presentation.
We produced the original version of Veil with Houshiary for the stage production Amu, Amu premiered at London's Sadlers Wells Theatre before touring worldwide.
Following the premiere of Amu, Houshiary wished to develop the animation further to create an independent animated film installation.
Two of Houshiary's paintings form the basis of the arts animation Veil, the paintings brought together for the piece with narrative through animation. The animated film explores the idea of absence and presence; inspired by the Veil of St. Veronica by Spanish painter Francisco de Zubaran (c.1635). Veil explores the relationship between image and image-less in an attempt to reveal the hidden and invisible, with an emergence of the elusive and evasive.
Veil was first presented at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York City.
The 3D arts animation we produced for Veil was created using Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.
We collaborated with Studio Wayne McGregor to produce performing arts animation for the Light Atlas dance performance.
McGregor's direction for Light Atlas was to propel the imagination into a fresh dimension where alien universes collide in a futuristic expedition to find the map of tomorrow.
For Light Atlas, McGregor came to us with just the name of the piece, asking us to use that as a starting point to create the animation. From there, we created five animated sequences inspired by the name, our research, and brainstorming the concept of light being a guide.
The animation sequences were front projected throughout the dance performance, designed to seamlessly integrate with the choreography, lighting and score. A gauze was setup across the front of the stage and a screen at the back, the animation being projected through the gauze and onto the screen adding further dimension to the animated sequences to create a virtual environment for the dancers to perform within.
Light Atlas was performed at the Trinity Laban Conservatorie of Music and Dance in London.
The 3D animation we produced for Light Atlas was created using Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.
