Backrooms - Intermission

Posted on September 30, 2022

Everyone's favorite backrooms, now explored in Source 2. This cinematic was created over the course of almost two months, with the very first mocap session conducted in early August of this year.

I initially wanted to make a horror comedy, poking fun at my beloved analog horror genre and the overhyped backrooms phenomena, but over time my vision drifted in a bit different direction. This work is mostly intended as a tech demo of sorts, as I was familiarizing myself with motion capture and just practicing new stuff, such as special effects, camera techniques etc.

So far I am quite satisfied with the results, and I intend on improving my workflow now that I have finally got my hands on motion capture equipment (Perception Neuron 2, for those interested). I am very excited about the future prospects of using such technology in my works.
