Once more the company Camdroid tries to revolutionize the filmmaking business with a ground-breaking product: the autonomous camera robot CamBot Mark 2. However, this leaked video reveals some dramatic deficits.
The short film 'Camdroid' has been produced in a virtual production environment at Filmakademie, combining motion capture with live camera tracking via ncam and an early prototype of set editing tools.
An interface prototype has been built, which enables both the director and the cinematographer to interactively improve the scenery and receive high quality feedback in real-time. A head-mounted display allows a mobile exploration and therefore, more natural perception of virtual elements. A gesture recognition sensor offers the possibility to instantaneously relocate and manipulate objects and lights with simple gestures.
