Tokyo Light Odyssey (360º Film)

From the creator:

About the Work
From the lights of skyscrapers and homes, to the neon street lights and headlamps of cars and trains in motion… fragments of the city float like stardust out of the darkness against the curtain of the night sky. This new vision of Tokyo is explored with omnidirectional motion graphics.

This work was born from ‘Beyond Motion Graphics’ (http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics) an internal company project at WOW aimed at exploring new possibilities for motion graphics. In using VR technology, consideration was given as to what kind of images to showcase and express as pieces of art.

作品について
夜のとばりに包まれた高層ビルの光、街頭のネオン、電車や道行く車のヘッドライトから家々が湛える暮らしの灯りまで、暗闇から現れる星屑のような街の断片を浮遊しながら、東京という都市の新たなビジョンへと至る、全天球型のモーショングラフィックス。

本作は、モーショングラフィックスの新たな可能性を問うWOWの社内プロジェクト「Beyond Motion Graphics」( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics )から誕生。VRの技術的側面に加え、それによって切り拓かれるべき映像=アートとしての表現性に注目した。
