Title: The Fall of the Circus (Working Title)

Team: Ji Young Chun, Chris Hall

Concept:  We are creating an immersive experience that approaches some of the history and the ultimate downfall of the circus.  The viewer will enter the circus and be shown some of the most compelling illusions that drove crowds to view these showcases.  Our goal for this piece will be for the viewer to experience an inviting time capsule that attempts challenge the way they think about the circus by providing a different perspective on its once showy demeanor.

Storyboard:

We will have four circus tents that the viewer can roam freely within. We will use lighting, sound and smoke queues to attempt to guide the viewer, however. Each tent has a different story and illusion to explore spatially in both a visual and an audible sense.

Below are the ideas for each tent:

Ji create a rough example of what the layout will look like in Unity:

 

 

AltDocs – Photogrammetry

We were asked to capture an item with a volumetric capture and I decided to try photogrammetry:

The model is above and the process below:

The subject needs to be well lit:

This uniform light made it successful to use every image captured.  This was not the case with my first attempt

I tried to capture this amethyst on my balcony with natural light, and was not successful because the light varied on different side of the object:

Only 8 of 19 images were able to be tracked:

The non uniformity of the light outside made the item not able to be constructed into 3D. I only ended up with creating a flat image with in the 3D software;

 

Instructions on how to make it work can be found here.

Found Object

Anna-Michelle and I were tasked to create a non-fiction narrative about 18 film negatives that were found on the street.

After getting them all printed. we took some time to see if we could come up with the story of the roll of film.

It appears that the photos were taken at an event, possibly a wedding.

With this in mind, We decided to tell this one woman’s story since it seems like the camera could have been hers, we call her Andrea:

We decided to do a live performance/skit where two detectives are tasked with finding the missing persons case of Andrea Leandro.  She was last scene at this wedding and in the skit we go through the images and slide, and through her life to try to determine what happened to her.  We developed her relationships with the individuals in the photos and added some more background information to portray the complete picture of Andrea.

Here are our analysis of the photos and the stories we developed around them.

Here is the script of the detective and how they portray Andrea’s life by trying to figure out what happened to her.
