Centroid, studio de motion et performance capture et production virtuelle, annonce le lancement d’une librairie en ligne de données de motion capture. Situé dans les célèbres studios de cinéma de Pinewood, Centroid a en pratique mis en place un site dédié qui compte déjà près de 400 éléments.
Au menu, pour le moment : humains en déplacement, actions pour vos foules (personnages assis ou debout qui observent, parlent, mangent, bougent légèrement, lisent, boivent, téléphonent…), cheval, mais aussi des collections thématiques telles que “zombies” et “pirates” (avec des personnages qui escaladent, chargent des canons, tirent, se battent au sabre, etc).
La collection a pour elle deux avantages principaux : d’une part, l’utilisation du service Sketchfab pour l’affichage 3D temps réel de chaque élément, ce qui permet contrairement à une vidéo d’observer le mouvement sous tous les angles, zoomer, faire pause afin d’être certain que ce que l’on achète convient.
D’autre part, les tarifs relativement abordables : les scènes avec humains sont toutes disponibles pour une quinzaine d’euros. Les scènes avec cheval sont plus chère, le record étant atteint avec l’extrait “lie down” (1500€ environ). On imagine évidemment que la raison est la nécessité de recourir à un cheval spécialement dressé.
Enfin, sur le plan technique, les données sont fournies au format FBX avec mouvement en 120fps appliqué à un squelette (les personnages des visualisations sont présents de façon purement esthétique et ne sont pas inclus).

Born in the heart of the VJ boom in the 90s, after their own artistic experimentation, and Michael’s first ever (what we would call now) VJ gig in 1985, Michael Denton and Anna McCrickard formed Overlap in 1998. They are based in Hastings in the UK. Unlike some VJs, who purely focus on the visual side of the art form, Overlap are a an AV collaborative duo in the purest sense of the concept, who also produce minimalist music in parallel with their exploration of both moving and still image. They’ve also performed at many a festival, forming part of a collective of VJs represented by Microchunk.
Their work takes the form of live audiovisual performances, exhibitions, transitional paintings, installations, VJ sets and even prints, and takes on audiovisual culture from a fine art perspective, which makes their work both fascinating and unique in a wide variety of different contexts.
Overlap started VJ-ing and performing AV sets as regular guests of resident VJs Reality Check at Turnmill’s club (The Gallery, London Calling) in 1998, guesting with Reality Check at The Chemical Brothers’ headline set at Turnmill’s Millenium gig in London’s Docklands. The next decade saw Overlap’s visuals splashed across screens at major international festivals including Creamfields, Andalucia, Electric Picnic Ireland, Glastonbury’s Glade stage, Pete Tong’s Wonderland in Ibiza and Glastonbury’s Glade, as part of the Microchunk visuals boutique. They created visuals for for the Industrial Resolution installation at the first Manchester International Festival: performed live on the largest indoor screen in Europe, accompanying the world’s leading DJs including Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Laurent Garnier, Layo, Pete Tong and Sasha. Overlap also played regular VJ slots at Razzmatazz (Loft), Barcelona and Pete Tong’s Wonderland, Eden, Ibiza (Deadmau5, Groove Armada). Overlap were commissioned by Microchunk to animate Damien Hirst artwork for Pete Tong’s Ushuaia at Le Grand Bazaar, Ibiza in 2013.
Overlap also work with the Noise of Art collective as resident VJ-s and moving image artists. Their fine art single screen video works have been screened at the ICA, BFI and Tate Modern. Recent projects include:- a celebration of 100 Years of Electronic Music at the National Portrait Gallery London; Forest Tree limited edition for Sedition Art; audiovisual “painting” installations for the National Trust’s Fenton House and Calke Abbey; opening the Arquiteturas Film Festival in Lisbon with their Places that Dance AV set; short films “Returning” and “Switch” awarded special mentions at the Avanca and EMAF film festivals; an audiovisual performance in the British Ambassador’s Residence in Beijing. Recent art screenings/performances of their works have included Aquatint at Riders on the Mall/ROM, MUSZI, Budapest and Digital Graffiti, Florida, Forest Tree at STRP Biennale at Strijp S in Eindhoven and Cloud Edged at Light Fantastic, House of Nobleman, Frieze.
Perhaps one of the most poignant aspects of their audiovisual artwork is its accessibility and ability to be embraced and engaging in such an extensive mixture of spaces, including performances and installations everywhere from music festivals (Creamfields, Splice festival, Madatac, Fiber, Generate, Big Chill, STRP Biennale); and night clubs (Razzamatazz, Barcelona, Wonderland – Eden, Ibiza), to prestigious galleries (Tate Modern, Pompidou, National Portrait Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum), as well as being featured in some important publications on VJ culture, such as Audio – Visual Art and VJ Culture (2006) They even remixed and VJed The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour film for its cinema première at the South Bank with Noise of Art at London’s BFI.
Their working process involves adding and removing layers, degrees of opportunism and systematised chance, creating generative combinations ranging from slow transitional paintings, to fast flowing AV performances.
Their most recent work includes Transitional Landscape, designed for exhibition and art installation, ‘Rooms’, which explores the relationship between indoors and outdoors, combining and fusing luscious wallpaper motifs with beautiful organic landscape scenes. It juxtaposes man-made life with that of the wonders of the natural world.

Madatac is a new media art, video art and audiovisual technology focused festival based in Madrid, Spain. It’s a veteran in the industry, celebrating it’s 10th year this year. The 2020 edition MadatacX will be celebrated 16th April – 3rd May and will include AV performances from the likes of Kenta Nakagawa, Franck Vigroux & Antoine Schmitt and the great Ryoji Ikeda.
Rather than following the common one price for all festival format, events take place over a longer period of time with various viewings and performances spread in nice little doses, great for busy audiences who are only able to attend a little at a time.
With an open philosophy, framed within a universalist, pedagogical and free access commitment, which places special emphasis on the innovation, originality, risk and poetics of audiovisual projects focused on the experimental art of new media, it has the aim to serve as a real, virtual and itinerant laboratory where artists can present their latest creations.

Bogotà, 13-23 February 2020
Bogotrax 2020 is a matrix. It is the multiple matrix of a mycelium. A constantly expanding network. Its flowers emerge whenever an encounter (between hyphae) happens.
That is the experiment: to interweave a network of partnerships where organizers and public, actors and spectators jointly participate in the production of social space.
Bogotrax Festival has been taking place in Bogotá, Colombia, for 10 years. From 2003 onward, during the month of February. Ten days of parties and workshops; talks, conferences, performances, activities in different locations, street parades, activities in different local prisons, exhibitions, graffiti, “raves”.
All this for free. Collectives and artists from different countries supported the festival with their participation.
The festival was never meant to promote brands nor it was funded by any institutions. The festival rebellious self-managing spirit led it to program the end of its first life cycle. Bogotrax restarted itself with a relevant topic: “Only in case of emergency.”
This year at the 2020 NAB Show, on booth # SL9613, Facilis Technology, a leading international supplier of cost-effective, high performance shared storage solutions for collaborative media production networks, will debut version 8 of the Facilis Shared Storage System, version 3.5 of its FastTracker Media Asset Management software, and new Object Cloud Synchronization features. ...

En admirant les cinématiques du studio Digic Pictures, on en oublierait presque le travail énorme qu’elles nécessitent. Outre une armée de spécialistes de l’animation, le studio fait appel à des actrices et acteurs qui maîtrisent parfaitement le processus de motion capture/performance capture.
Zsuzsanna Rácz est justement une de ces actrices, et elle vient de dévoiler une bande démo qui reprend 6 années de travail au service de Digic. On y retrouvera des extraits de ses performances et des cinématiques finalisées, mais aussi des images de ses entraînements : Zsuzsanna Rácz se doit donc de maintenir sa forme physique afin de pouvoir effectuer cascades, sauts et combats lors des séances de motion capture.

Eufònic is a sound, visual and digital-performing arts festival held in Sant Carles de la Ràpita about an hour South of Barcelona. As an extension of this annual festival, Eufònic Urbà, provides a city-based version of the festival, which sees exhibitions and installations at the Arts Santa Mònica, right in the very heart of Barcelona. Eufònic experiences can be found in, and not limited to; museum spaces, sound actions, activities for the family audience, and concerts in unique spaces.
This year, we will have the pleasure to explore the urban festival for an entire month – leaving us with no excuse for not absorbing some audiovisual culture this winter. From February 1 to 29, 2020, we can expect to enjoy artistic presentations, audiovisual performances and experimental proposals some of which have already been presented at the summer version of the festival on the mediterranean coast, as well as some new exclusive features, as well as presentation of the creative residences.
The festival is organised in two different phases.
The most punctual of the two being 7th–8th February with more one-off performances and timed events, such as AV performances and project presentations, with artists such as NSDOS, Sam Aaron, Balfa, Clara Brea, dvdv, William Luke Valerio, Jordi Salvadó and Tim Cowlishaw & Jakub Fiala.
“where the human presence is diluted in the responsibility of being cause or effect”
The longer duration part of the festival offerings involves Tonalitats afectives (Affective Tones in Catalan), an exhibition on the 2nd floor of Arts Santa Mònica, on Las Ramblas. It can be visited for a month (until February 29) and entrance is completely free. It focuses on the visions of six artists linked to the liquid gesture, the indeterminate process and involuntary creative will as tools of work and processes of reflection. Amongst the huge variety of installations, you will be able to find everything from changes in subject matter, algorithmic creations, and neobiological worlds, creating a discourse about a variety of scientific observations, such as memory of space and context, and objectivity and physicality.
Work includes projects by artists such as Navid Navab and Michael Montanaro, Kathy Hinde, Óscar de la Fuente, Sofia Crespo, Marc Vilanova and Raquel Meyers).

Mois Multi 2020 is an archipelago of artists who express themselves madly, humanly, in a gigantic and dazzling spasm of life.
In a nutshell, the 2020 programs revolves around things that collapse. A subject of undoubted importance in the current times which affects us in the private and political life. The spark for this edition came, among other things, from the APA office, which approached us almost a year ago to talk about collapse. A joyful bonfire was born from this desire.
This is an edition generated by an unstoppable youth that also leaves space to a wise and proud guard. It’s young, casual, punk and contemporary. Festival curator, Emile Beauchemin aims to program a diversity of humans, approaches, subjects and ways to approach this world that we are constantly trying to understand and reconstruct.
Mois Multi is a project created by Recto Verso whose mission is to support and promote the research, creation and dissemination of multidisciplinary and electronic arts.
In every edition, MM programs aim to bridge the gap between artworks and public, offering an unique and accessible experience of the art and the world.
