Ballet is a beautiful form of dance and I feel inspired to make an attempt to compliment the art with visual effects and find a way of implementing my own visuals to extend a particular mood towards a performance and maybe incorporate some of my own feelings and expressions in as well. I have briefly dug around to see what other comparisons are out there of cg that compliments movement in similar ways. Things like the hunter music video by Bjork and the film Black Swan use visual effect with movement in very interesting ways, I’m sure there are many other examples but this feels like the right starting point for research. The performance must drive the computer graphics so that nothing is taken away from the spirit of movement created by the dance.
This is a very early concept image I drew whilst at work when I first came up with the concept about a month ago.
