This time, artistic and manufacturing studio abstr^ct:groove had the pleasure to experiment with an historical visible approach: the kaleidoscope.
“We designed and constructed four thaumascopes of various configurations and dimensions. The most important one was 9 metres lengthy with a triangular opening of two.5 metres and the smallest was 1.5 metres in size with a sq. opening of 60 centimetres.
As a way to perceive the best way to obtain the graphics patterns we needed, we began by learning small scale fashions after which we went onto CGI simulations.
All the results have been obtained in digital camera with out the usage of added publish manufacturing.”
The movement design is powerfully aided by distinctive performers: The Italian Nationwide Staff of Rhythmic Gymnastic “le Farfalle”, choreographed by their coach Emanuela Maccarani.
The movie is directed by Luigi Pane, who was personally concerned in set design, soundtrack scoring and the mixed choreography of the gymnasts and backgrounds.
The music is produced by Franky B (aka Cryptic Monkey), additionally recognized for “Rise of the Kaiju”, soundtrack for the Yamaha industrial “The Darkish Aspect of Japan”.
