Prismatic was my first independent project after leaving my position as Creative Director at Autofuss and Google in 2015. It has begun as a proof‑of‑concept animatic for a larger, practical set I am currently developing. Soon though it took life on its own as a self-standing animation I am happy to share with you here.
I designed the space to create an illusion of never-ending stage while using a set only a few paces across. Drawing inspiration from children’s kaleidoscopes, I created a system of large mirrors and lights, infinitely illuminating and reflecting one another. The lights themselves were then carefully sequenced and choreographed to the sound of EDM glitch-hop track composed by acclaimed demoscene musician, h0ffman.
Rendered using a custom-built QubaVR stereoscopic capture and stitching rig, Prismatic is an audio-visual treat, that will make you feel present in its colorful, abstract, virtual environment.
Rendered in Stereoscopic 360°, Prismatic is best experienced using an HMD (Head-Mounted Display), such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Gear VR or Google Cardboard. The Vrideo player above supports most of these viewers on the desktop systems.
For those you on mobile devices, Google Cardboard and native YouTube App will be the best bet. Keep reading below for other ways to experience this video on your platform of choice.
