Here is a preview of what Brent is working on up here in Troy! 

Before a live show of Gravity we performed here Brent was backstage ranting about building a live action, glass animating machine.  Taking the traditional method of staggering panes of glass to paint animated scenes on to create a feeling of depth and ease of frame change (this link has a really amazing tutorial on the history of glass animation/"under camera animating"), he was trying to envision a way see through screens could reveal images in real time and, much to our surprise, a phone call came a month or so later saying "Let's do it!"

The amazing brains of EMPAC have helped make Brent's insanity come to life and it is pretty amazing! The project is still in "beta testing" and the form is slowly taking shape but, as you can see here, the collaboration is both crazy and awesome! Will update more on the project as cels get painted and soundtracks recorded! Woohooo!
