Facial Expression – Practical Work 2

One of the work that i have been working on is Projecting animated Facial Expression into human head.

I had great inspiration ‘Projection Mapping On A Human Face’

Chase No Face / BELL from Francisco Zamorano on Vimeo.

A music video for BELL
bellinspace.com

Visuals by Zach Lieberman, Francisco Zamorano, Andy Wallace, and Michelle Calabro.

(note: no post-production effects were used in this video. everything on the face is happening in real-time, via hacked Kinect, laptop and LED projector. It’s built using FaceTracker code from Jason Saragih)

some making of shots:

Projection mapping is one of those techniques whose popularity is only increasing with time, and its ubiquitous nature has brought about some interesting and inventive examples. For example, we’ve seen buildings come alive, interiors decorated, illuminated architectural scale models, and factories transform into theaters all meticulously planned and executed. Now we can add the latest music video from Brooklyn-based musician BELL to the ever growing list of novelty uses. It takes the human form as its canvas specifically lead vocalist Olga Bell’s face.

The video for “Chase No Face,” directed by Francisco Zamorano with visuals from Zach Lieberman, Andy Wallace, and Michelle Calabro, was made using a hacked Kinect, an LED projector, openFrameworks, a laptop and Jason Saragih’s FaceTracker code.

In the video, the projection mappings all happen in real-time, giving a rather

interesting and charming appearance to the video. As the augmented animations start dancing across Bell’s face, we’re drawn to the way they cling to the contours of her features, highlighting her lips, cheeks, eyes, etc. Using the singer’s face in this way enabled Zamorano to play around with the FaceTracker software in a way we haven’t seen yet, while adding emphasis to the lyrics and generating some playful yet precise footage. The end result looks simple yet entertaining.

Korean Rapper Yumdda Raises The Bar On Face Projections

Known for being MTV Korea’s funky and outspoken VJ, rapper Yumdda returns to the studio after a five-year hiatus to lay down some much- anticipated new music.
The music video for “Raise It Up” demonstrates a visual experiment that leaves an uncanny and rather in your face impression. The video, shot in a single take with an added layer of projection, draws you in so much so that you may have to watch a couple times to catch all his facial expressions. Watching multiple layers of Yumdda rap simultaneously makes it seem like we’re watching all his multiple personalities unravel.

Facial Expression – Practical Work

An Visualisation Method of Music Impression in Facial Expression to Represent Emotion.
In an attempt to provide a clear assessment of the theory that a physical facial change, involving only certain facial muscles, can result in an emotion. The visualisation method of music impression in facial expression to represent emotion. This method can measure the relationship between each impression of music data and face expression. This method can composite facial expression corresponding to impressions of a music data. Facial expression is one of nonverbal behaviors. The facial expression is important as media that convey various emotions effectively.

Facial Expression- Projection Mapping from Shkelzen Kernaja on Vimeo.

A study of facial expression in visual effect focusing on sound / adding sound. Can 3D workflow effectively inform how sound stimulate facial Anatomy?
I am interest how facial muscles react to the sound using different instruments and how muscle work. One of the works that influenced me is Duchenne of Boulogne, Duchenne wanted to determine how the muscles in the human face produce facial expressions, which he believed to be directly linked to the soul of man.
My attempt is to demonstrate emotions as well as individual muscles actions by using clean sounding instruments, and then we listen to it in order to incorporate different feelings and emotions to the character.

Work in progress And the Final Work “Facial Expression”

My attempt is to demonstrate emotions as well as individual muscles actions by using clean sounding instruments, and then we listen to it in order to incorporate different feelings and emotions to the character.

This are some Screen Shot of my work.

The Facial Muscles, and in particular those in the lips, help to shape the sound and air stream into recognizable speech. These muscles move the face in response to our thoughts, feelings, emotions and impulses. Actors work very carefully to learn how to isolate each muscle. It is useful to learn to recognize the various muscles in order to better isolate them, so that any extraneous movement is eliminated and the muscles used are those desired. Also by recognizing the muscles’ shape, it is easier to understand how these muscles move the face.

This is the final video that i have finished.

many thanks

 

 

final Research “Facial Expression”

I have selected and show some of the artist that is making music with facial expression.

 

It seems everyone these days is looking for new ways to interact with computers and information. One might even say that we’re entering into “the age of the interface,” where actions and interactions are going to be guided by increasingly invisible and intuitive ways of meshing two environments together.

Jonathan Hammond turns his face into a musical instrument.https://vimeo.com/26475997

Manabe’s latest experiment uses myoelectric (an electrical impulse that results in the contraction of muscle fibres) sensors to create a drum machine out of a human body. Attaching touch sensors to his hands, Manabe sends electric pulses to his friend, and in turn generates sound and makes his friend’s face twitch in the process.
