Avant Première Talk ‘Mirages – An innovative exploration combining arts and technologies’
Presented by KROMA Productions
This Avant Première Talk is about using innovative technologies in order to create world class art, using the example of the extraordinary production “Mirages”. Mirages is innovative by nature - a production where the basis lies in music and the visual world is realised by using green screen, virtual studio and motion capture techniques. This production combines live action footage of the performer with real-time virtual sets and interactive digital elements. This is a new method for creating the visual world around the performer in any audiovisually transmitted event - an innovative interplay between online streaming, film and game design technologies.
This Avant Première Talk is held in the course of the Programme Focus "Innovation Day".
