TIPPING POINT 2015
I had the pleasure of working with Autofuss to create a massive projection loop for Tipping Point's 2015 charity event. The organization partners with non-profit groups to educate, employ, house and support individuals in need. The theme this year was points of light, so our approach was to create graphic forms with light bokeh captured in camera to represent communities of people.

Our projection ran for a total of 30 minutes and led visitors down a wide hallway towards the main seating area.
We created a 2 minute loop at 10680 x 1200 pixels for the final projection. All the primary elements were shot at 4K in camera and then composited with Cinema 4D particle effects.
In order to create clusters of light that represent the various Tipping Point grantees, we wrapped christmas lights around a disco ball and composited the various takes together. 3D particles were also added as icing on the cake.
I created style frames to test the various light bokeh compositing effects and create a direction for our final animation.
We wrapped a human model (MoCap Pat) in a string of christmas lights and filmed him with various filters on the camera lens (featured below). These hot dance moves were shot for the DJ set following our initial projections.
We laser cut various acrylic patterns, which were placed over the camera lens. Each design changed the form of the light bokeh depending on the camera's aperture settings or focus distance.
We used multiple rigs to create light bokeh forms in camera. A disco ball was our main object while we also created a turntable with a boosted board.
