    This is a short longboard film I recently produced. The idea behind it was to marry some slow motion longboard sliding to a 'glitch' track and mash it all up to the beat. I wanted the images and audio to become one. Also wanted to try some super slow shots and see how far I could push optical flow.

    • Wavy Gravy - Who Needs Twixtor? 2000 FPS+ With Apple Motion

      Shot at 59.94 frames/second then timed in Apple Motion using Optical flow. No rotoscoping or masking. The slowest footage was slowed down to about 2% speed. Much thanks to Matt Wiebe for grinding it out that day...He can do flippier tricks, but I needed straight airs to avoid the "wavy gravy" -- something that occurs when you force the computer to create new frames. I have nothing against Twixtor, just can't afford it...thank you to CrumplePop for the Motion Tutorial!! Music: Mr. Little Jeans Remix of Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" Enjoy!

          Amy and I spent an hour last week testing out the Gopro on her hula hoop. This is what we captured. She is a fire performer and that hoop will get lit on fire in an upcoming film, so stay tuned!!! Music Credit: Flight Facilities - Crave You (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix) Twitter: @paul_kroeker

                'Noise Ink' is a pseudo 2D fluid/ink animation system which responds to body movement via a Kinect camera. A combination of optical flow and perlin noise control the visuals. It was originally created for the 2011 Auckland Arts Festival: http://vimeo.com/21620801 Project page with more information: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Noise-Ink-body-reactive-installation/1244325 Processing source code and binaries available on my GitHub: https://github.com/trentbrooks/Noise-Ink SETUP 1) Download the source code or binaries 2) If your downloading the source, you will also need to download the open kinect libraries- https://github.com/shiffman/libfreenect/tree/master/wrappers/java/processing. Copy the 'wrappers/java/distribution/openkinect' folder into your Processing libraries. 3) Connect your kinect camera via usb 4) Launch the NoiseInk app or run from Processing. The kinect depth image should appear. 5) Adjust the minimum and maximum depths with keys 'a,z,s,x' until you get a clear white silhouette of your body with everything else black. 6) That's it, press 'space' to begin. Pressing 'space' will toggle the kinect menu on or off.

                  For the launch of Xbox Kinect in Germany, seeper created an interactive projection mapping that captured the Stachus square in central Munich, and the advent of controller free gaming was celebrated in epic style. As the Karlstor arch was splashed with colour and light, hoards of participants were thrown into a series of games in which their body was the only controller they needed. The spirit of gaming is involvement, and at seeper we want everyone to be in.
