Creativity Online Editor's Pick!

Over at Psyop, we built Mr. Mucus in a realtime rendering engine (Unreal and Unity), and then made him controllable via motion and facial capture rigs. We then set up a giant video wall at Terminal 8 in JFK, and set hidden cameras everywhere so he could interact with the people walking by. It was a super fun, super technically challenging event to pull off (two motion capture rigs, two realtime render-ers, the AV flow at the airport, etc.), but it came out great!
