January 16th 10:00am-3:00pm (free)
Ever dream of being like those Hollywood actors that get their movement captured onto a CG character? Well, now’s your chance! Come to Digital Double motion capture studio and experience this first hand as you jump, kick, or dance as a cute bear, sumo warrior, or even a character of your choice.
Here's a Digital Double video that shows the process of motion capture:
January 16th 7:00pm (free)
J-Walt performs a solo show of his own images and music, drawing virtual landscapes and geometric abstractions with software and computer interfaces he designed. The audience watches as J-Walt draws with a pen tablet and animates creatures and environments. Always pushing the envelope, J-Walt has made his show even more high-tech, immersing audiences into state-of-the-art digital fulldome and 3D stereo. The pieces are highly improvisational — each performance is unique.
The performance is at Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th St.
