Adult Swim Upfront Party

,

CLIENT: ADULT SWIM | AGENCY: KLIP COLLECTIVE | PRODUCTION: KLIP COLLECTIVE AND ADULT SWIM
ROLE: TECHNICAL DIRECTION, 3D

When Adult Swim parties, they party with giant projection mapped eggs. When they do that, they ask Klip to make it happen.
When Klip makes it happen, they get me to help figure out how.
I took CAD files of the stage and projector set ups and translated that into templates for 2d and 3d artists. I also created a matching 3d template to use in TouchDesigner for the live event. In between the technical stuff, I was able to squeeze in a little animation for the show as well.
I created some melty paint transitions in Houdini and got to do a little data moshing as well. Fun times.
Mark McCallum did the hard stuff taking the 3d template and 2d content and authoring the show in TouchDesigner. Animators at Adult Swim and some really talented freelance cell animators handled all the 2d character animation. Klip did the rest.
Oh, and Niki Minaj performed at the party too.
I didn’t get to go, but it was probably past my bedtime anyway.
