Sony - Ozark Henry "Elliot"

For Ozark Henry (Piet Goddaer) - a signed artist at Sony Records - we created world's first audio-responsive Augmented Reality video as an app. All you need is a face, this is the canvas for the video to unfold.

THE EXPERIENCE

In this 7 minute video the user is the canvas on which the story unfolds. Through the camera of your phone you look at your face and slowly the mask comes into place. It’s also possible to look at other faces as the canvas of the experience. During the song a mask is drawn on your face. This mask gets distorted and music starts breaking it up. Further into the song the masks gets distorted to cubist depths by the audio running through it.

AUGMENTED REALITY

Augmented Reality is all the hype these days. With the coming of Apple’s ARkit and Google’s ARcore so much fun is possible. For this video we used the users face for our AR experience. Staying close to the person. We use a persons face as the canvas by tracking all the head movements and their mymicry realtime. During the experience we invite the user to playfully work his/her face.

The app will be available for downloading in weeks. Link will be posted here.
