The Show R&B Superstars Motion Graphics Piece

The Show R&B Superstars – Motion Graphic Animations

RoomCR6 were commissioned to create a promotional motion graphic animation for ‘The R & B Superstars” show, held at the Wembley arena. The first motion graphic piece was produced back in September 2013 and was created to promote the upcoming show in November 2013. We were then commissioned to do another piece to help promote the following show which took place in February 2014. Not only was the second motion graphic piece shown on the big screens on either side of the stage at the Wembley arena during the live show in November in front of a crowd of over 11,000, but it was also used as an online promotion piece. This was an amazing opportunity for us to see our work on such a grand stage.

Motion Capture Exhibition Research

For the last couple months we have been planning and exploring some ideas for a motion capture exhibition we are looking to set up later in the year. Our primary focus is to use motion capture techniques and output a digital visual display of the captured motion. Although this process is nothing new and has been done before we have come up with a special twist that will most definitely make things very exciting, however we won’t be sharing too much more detail on this until we are ready to roll out the display, let’s call it ‘Dramatic Suspense’ for now.

In the mean time we thought we would wet your visual appetites and show some of our recent research ventures to give a general idea of the direction we are planning on heading towards.
