Issu de l’association de Sébastien Chort et Grégory Jennings, deux vétérans du secteur 3D, Nobody Studio nous annonce son lancement. L’entité est localisée dans le Sud de la France, aux ICC de Montpellier.
Sébastien Chort et Grégory Jennings cumulent 35 ans d’expérience : passés chez DreamWorks, Blur, Framestore ou encore Dwarf, ils ont travaillé sur des projets tels que Shrek, Kung-Fu Panda, Assassin’s Creed, Gravity ou encore Love Death + Robots saison 2.
La nouvelle entité ambitionne de répondre aux besoins internationaux, tout en s’appuyant sur les talents locaux. Les premiers clients de Nobody Studio se situent essentiellement en Amérique du Nord. Les spécialités du studio : 3D, lighting, compositing et supervision de projet.
Même s’il vient seulement d’être officialisé, le studio existe en pratique depuis l’an passé et compte actuellement 3 salariés, 8 artistes sous contrat. L’équipe peut notamment compter sur la présence d’Emma Gerard, chargée de production et communication.
A terme, Nobody Studio souhaite s’émanciper de sa clientèle afin de développer ses propres projets.
A noter : l’entreprise a été fondée sous forme de SCOP (coopérative), une approche rare mais que l’on retrouve chez quelques entités du secteur 3D comme Les Fées Spéciales, Calédio-Scop, Praxinos (qui nous avait justement parlé de cette démarche lors d’une interview).
Un choix atypique, donc, mais qui permet selon Sébastien Chort et Grégory Jennings de disposer d’un « format démocratique, transparent et libre », et de disposer d’un studio à l’image de leur idéal de travail et leurs valeurs.
S’il est encore trop tôt pour évoquer les projets du studio, nous devrions pouvoir vous en dire plus au début de l’été. D’ici là, on pourra consulter le site officiel de Nobody Studio.
L’entité a également été ajoutée à notre liste/carte des studios.

Created by Madeline Schwartzman, "Face Nature" is a series of experiments produced within the context of See Yourself X: Human Futures Expanded (SYX), a recent publication by Madeline that looks at human perception and the sensory apparatus and questions what will be the physical future of the head and the sensory apparatus in fifty years time.

The visual elements of a presentation are essential to the work any broadcaster makes when promoting their brand. However, if the audio doesn’t match with the quality of the visual sophistication of the presentation, then the creative might as well as kiss their audience goodbye. The way a presentation is presented on a visual ...

As we slide into the new normal or la nueva normalidad it is inevitable that the AV world will experience a considerable amount of visibility during the pandemic as technology plays an important part in everything that we do. A surge of online events, meetings and live streams now fill up our diaries like they are going out of fashion and meeting up with your mates down the pub for a pint after work is so 2019.
Enter the evolution of user generated entertainment platforms like Twitch, which now boasts 17.5 million average daily visitors. Resident Advisor has invented its own virtual island Streamland where all virtual events that have been successfully submitted to RA exist. And MelodyVR brings the artist even closer to the fan through some very high spec virtual reality streaming experiences. Did somebody say Zoom quiz?
The drive for innovation and exploration in the world of audiovisual art and culture is again on the rise, opening up in new forms. Which leads me onto the question about interdisciplinary artists and institutions who challenge the status quo and dare to oppose the mainstream. Where are they and what is their artistic response to the pandemic?
I give you BODY (UN)MUTE. A two-day online festival curated by Bogomir Doringer hosted by ICK Dans Amsterdam that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. The audiovisual event will deliver a programme of workshops, talks and performances from all corners of new media, dance and conceptual art. But how can these rituals take place in an online space?
“Technology has been around forever, but most people are not familiar with the basics of streaming. Porn channels and video gaming platforms are way ahead of time and up until now artists haven’t really engaged with it, which makes it harder to get a certain quality that produces something more than just a Zoom call. I have been following the ritual of masking since 9/11 with my project Faceless – Re-inventing Privacy Through Subversive Media Strategies. What is the role of this in contemporary times? BODY (UN)MUTE is a physical representation of Faceless and my art exhibition Dance Of Urgency, which explores how dance and ritual rise in times of personal and collective crises, and how it can empower individuals and groups. In amongst a global pandemic both these ideas live together and that is why I want to explore this space with new media artists”– Bogomir Doringer
Some highlights come in the form of Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey who wants you to join his Augmented Reality Makeover Party where step-by-step you can learn how to perfect your own Augmented Reality (AR) digital mask and alter ego. Transgress and queer-up your identity, become a drag unicorn or whatever else you can imagine!
Rosa Menkman, an art theorist and visual artist specialising in glitch art and resolution theory, will screen her work Pique Nique pour les Inconnues :: The CHORUS VERSION (2019-2020). The video looks at various unknown women whose images are linked to the history of image processing. While these women seem to be able to prolong their existence for as long as the (digital) realms will copy and reuse them, most of them have lost their name and identity.
Live performance comes in the form of Keren Rosenberg and Nicola Cavalazzi, who will present an audiovisual art installation which explores our social obsession in self-exposure through the use of modern technology. Together they will question what it means to perform in front of a camera – where does the body finish and the screen start?
Dr. Kelina Gotman talks about how Choreomania, the manic crave for dance, is not just a bi-product of lockdown. Choreographer Emio Greco will elaborate on the Pizzica, a dance from his native ground in Puglia that was danced to heal yourself from the bite of a poisonous spider. And Shanghai Radio will close the two day event giving us an insight into how creativity, music and online streaming kept the Chinese creative community connected during the lockdown.
In a reaction to the pandemic tickets for the event are based on the principles of donation, which provides the public freedom to support the hard work and dedication from all the artists involved.
