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’
A music video for BELL
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.
