SET DESIGN: Immersive Cocoon "2011"
Keir Dullea encounters a mysterious object, in a scenario reminiscent of the penultimate scene from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey that he appeared in over forty years ago.
"2011" was conceived & developed 'in-house' by NAU partner Oliver Zeller over a two year period. Live action was filmed multi-camera, against greenscreen atop a backlit plexi floor on a shoestring budget. Mr. Dullea was then integrated into an entirely digitally created CG set rendered at 1080HD.
The mysterious object is the Immersive Cocoon. A future concept study by Tino Schaedler with NAU; an idea to push the envelope and provoke a new conception of interface technology. A fully surround visual and aural environment, where the entire body becomes the interface.
