      A short film by Flat-e. The project began life as a film to accompany a performance by the London Sinfonietta of Edgard Vareses Ionisation. An inspiring 20th century composer who pioneered works that cross over into the electronic scene of today. The piece shows what you can achieve when people collaborate in an unventilated environment where superglue fumes outweigh the oxygen 6:1. This is our first major collaboration with musician Ultre (http://www.ultre.co.uk).

In collaboration with Analog, FBFX and the band Duologue, this project is the beginning of a deeper study into filmmaking for the virtual reality environment. We worked with FBFX and their amazing 94-camera high resolution scanning rig, to create a full body scan of model Beryl Nesbitt. The scans then went to MLF’s long-term VFX collaborators Analog where they snatched a magical moment of the sunset through a window (the Analog Studio toilet), as a spherical panoramic HDR photo. These 2 photographic processes combined in 3D software where the toilet sunset illuminated Berlys Photo scanned form. We wanted to go beyond the limits of the audience’s eyeballs - using 3D to reveal different perspectives on the human form. After Analog received the high res models from FBFX they started to build realistic shaders for the skin. Obviously the eyes are extremely important in making a 3d person look realistic so Analog built their own layered eyes and tear ducts. Another thing they added was subtle hairs on the body. Since beryl is "returning to dust" analog also had to sculpt alternative versions where she was covered in an ash like material. Extra to the main model they also created all the additional pieces for the video like cloth and the rose. Once we had decided on camera moves and light positions every scene was lit, rendered & comped in house at Analog. Taking this level of detail to realtime VR environments is our next challenge.

            In another collaborative project with MarshmallowLaserFeast, and James Medcraft, we produced a stunning film for the launch of McLaren's P12 super car. The goal for the project was to show the P12’s aerodynamic qualities in a whole new light, without actually having physical access to the car itself. Light painting has been around for decades but has never been put into full motion. Until now. Working with McLaren we were able to process their wind tunnel airflow data and score out paths for individual trails of light. Each frame was then sliced into 650 frames that represent depths of 3D space and a plasma screen, mounted on a motion control rig, was used as a 3D light printer to play back the 650 slices as it moved through the space. We then repeated the move a thousand times for each frame of the animation and with each frame the camera, mounted on another motion control rig, moved a few millimeters so that over the course of the shoot we were able to create the effect of a moving camera. The finished film merges photography, animation and sculpture and is a truly unique way of representing aerodynamics that we feel justly celebrates this astonishing car.

              Aphex Twin has done some legendary live performances in the past, so when we were asked to produce his stage show for the Traffic festival in Turin (with 20,000 people turning up), we wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary. We decided that we wanted to push the show away from just video projections so we enlisted the help of dance choreographer Darren Johnston of the excellent Array. We wanted to combine our knowledge of video projections and Darren’s knowledge of dance choreography. So we had the dancers (Aphex masks, wedding dresses and all) move behind on stage screens and used video projections to morph their silhouettes into multi limbed monsters which raved away to Aphex’ set. We offset this with a central screen which showed mutated hands working a variety of analogue audio gear. The result was a delightfully twisted cabaret which seemed to fit the event perfectly.

                  Marshmallow Laser Feast designed an interactive course made entirely out of light for this insane commercial with our friends at the Brooklyn Brothers and Logan. Four of the world’s top drivers - Ken Block, Marc Basseng, Adrian Zaugg and Augusto Farfus pushed their skills and their nerves to the limit guided through the darkness by our minimalistic kinetic lighting design. The adrenal rush of a race into the unknown created an atmosphere of vast, bold aesthetics, the likes of which have never been seen before. Fruity!

                    My Secret Heart is a new commission by Streetwise Opera of a music and film installation written by electronic composer and Warp artist Mira Calix, video artists Flat-e and sound designer Dave Sheppard. The new piece is inspired by the Allegri's 17th-century choral work Miserere Mei, a piece so protected by the Vatican that they put an embargo on it. This film shows the installation during Nottingham's Light Night Festival.
