Developing Emerging Technologies: Live Stream Motion Capture

Project Description

This project focused on testing, fine tuning and developing content for an existing live streaming application in collaboration with Sawmill Motion Capture Studios. The team suited up and iteratively developed a script, blocking out various scenarios for two actors in two separate remote environments. The goal was to test out the live streaming application and find creative ways for two actors to interact (including touch) remotely.
