Invention in Three Parts

Real Engine Short Film

Deepak Chetty’s short film is focused on using motion capture to create more organic or “real” performances in animation. “Invention in Three Parts” is a motion capture of dance choreography by Dorothy O’Shea Overbey, based an original score by Nathan Felix. It’s “shot” in realtime as a render in Unreal Engine, making the “animation” an immediate and organic performance. The dancers are real, live-action performers wearing performance tracking suits, whose performances are transformed into creative and interruptive works of art.
