In April 2011, Martin Thoburn was invited to have his film FRAMES screen at the Dresden Film Festival. There, he participated in a 10-Year reunion of the Animation Exchange Forum that he had attended the year before. This year, the DREMATRIX Studio in Dresden was offering a promotional prize to anyone with a good idea for Motion Capture Data.
The Exquisite Motion Corpse concept was presented and won the prize. In May 2012, Chris Sandon and Martin Thoburn will fly to Dresden, Germany to use the 2 days of motion capture awarded to them as part of the prize. This new motion capture data will be utilized in future versions of the Exquisite Motion Corpse installation.
Stay tuned for behind-the-scenes photos and blog posts about Chris and Martin’s adventures in Germany – coming in May 2012!
