Dancing with the Stars

Dancing with the Stars

At Zoë Mode I served as Lead Artist on Activision’s Dancing with the Stars. The project involved running teams of artists across three sites in Brighton, London and Surrey as well as directing the motion-capture shoot of two of the dancers from the show over three days in LA. I addition I attended the show out there, and took extensive footage of the studio for us to build from.

I even took head shots of Bruno Tonioli.

As time was very tight on this project, we decided to use the data we had to create pre-rendered footage. Created in 3D Studio Max, this used extensive soft-body physics simulations to create luxurious, flowing dresses.

The end was result was quite stunning.

I didn’t lead the sequel we made, but did return to LA to run the motion capture shoot again.
