motion 2012: Opening Titles

For the 2012 Motion conference opening titles, I collaborated with the YoMoCo dance collective to choreograph a visual effect sequence captured with a Red camera and two Kinect sensors.  Using the dancers to create a world outside of themselves but also one which they inhabit was my metaphor for the creative process.
