I have been blessed. The VFX gods have smiled upon me once again, and thanks to Territory Studio, I was invited to Toronto to catch up to the new Batman v Superman Batmobile while it was on a Canadian tour! Territory had teamed up with Facebook to deliver an immersive 360 video teaser to reveal the new Batcave and Batmobile and boy was I lucky to be a part of it as the Photogrammetry Director. We travelled to Toronto where the Batmobile ceremoniously and loudly rumbled into the sound stage. It was there where we put our collective minds together and used methods of photogrammetry and depth sensor scanning to achieve the most detailed scan of the Batmobile as possible. Head over to the Batmobile page to see the results!
We have just returned from Vienna, Austria where Peter Eszenyi from Territory Studio and I traveled to an architecture school called Studio Lynn to teach students how to create 'Machine Vision.' After completing our work in MILES, Studio Lynn contacted us and informed us that they actually had a class that was exploring the world through the lens of a machine. How do machines perceive the world around us? Of course, this related directly to what we created for the vision of M.A.X. in MILES, so it was a match made in heaven.
Our workshop was two days long and included a start to finish demonstration on how we created scenes in MILES. This included a complete introduction to the world of 3D sensors and full demo of the Depth Kit. After we had captured our own 3D assets, we then dived into the world of post production, showing the students what they could do with these 3D assets. This included tutorials on Cinema 4D, After Effects, and more.
We were extremely honored to be apart of this workshop and look forward to seeing the students' final projects!
