To shoot this video we programmed a series of masks in openFrameworks based on the face tracking code developed by Zach Lieberman and Daito Manabe using the FaceTracker library by Jason Saragih. No post-production effects were used: everything in the video was recorded live, using a hacked Kinect, a laptop, a projector and a DSLR camera. Some of the masks respond to movement and others respond to sound, creating an expressive outcome.
Bell is a Brooklyn-based independent musician.
