To bring the figures at Madame Tussauds to life!
The video sequence tells the story of how the figures at Madame Tussauds are created.
We helped design a set which ensured guests weren't able to cast shadows on the figure.
We created a solution to stablise the captured video and then manipulate it to make it fit a static head.
This is Madame Tussauds first projection mapped figure, and is an example of our 'Living Figures' R&D which also supports multiple projectors, mechanically moving heads and sensor driven responsive animation.
Darius himself was charming and a real pro at the video shoot.
"We worked with seeper to develop our first ever Projection Mapped head which transforms before our eyes to show (and tell) how a Madame Tussauds wax figure is made. It’s incredibly cool and opens the door for many more figure innovations." Paula Hurst, Merlin Making Magic
