INITION has worked with music video director Andras Ketzer for his Keane promo, ‘Spiralling’.
Andras wanted the ability to be able to manipulate the camera position around lead singer Tom Chaplin’s head in post production. At Inition’s central London studios, Tom Chaplin sang his new single as a grid pattern was projected onto his face. Two high resolution cameras recorded the colour and texture information while the grid pattern registered the geometry of Chaplin’s head.
The Inition team processed the information and delivered a sequence of greyscale heightmap images which Andras Ketzer was able to render from any camera angle at any moment in time.
