In occasion of the electronic music festival Party Hard in the Province, organised by the creative team Equipe Fatale in Puglia during Christmas 2018, I created a set of psychedelic visual works that were projected onto walls and screens throughout the whole gig, both outdoor and indoor. Stronger was the first concept, projected in rotation with MOODY and the Tunnel. The idea is result of the storytelling pattern /real vs /fake.
/ TECHNICAL DETAILS
Stronger displays three humanoids, walking endlessly at a fast pace. The first one, the "Original", walks in the middle, firm and strong. The humanoids on the sides, copies, enter the scene at different times, featuring glitches as to represent t their attempt to simulate the Original in his path, without fully succeeding.
Their glitches are steady for the whole journey, while the humanoid in the middle does not seem to be affected. He is still firm and strong. Finally, while the Original looks like it survived the copies, is eventually infected by them. At the very end, they hit it hard. The original glitches are so strong, it disappears in a cloud of stars.
Stronger is a mix of 3D animation (Cinema4D), and 2D graphics (After Effects). The 3D animation was imported as a .fbx into After Effects, where the human model was duplicated twice. The model in the middle was and translated into particles through Red Giant's Form
