Those are super examples...
I would humbly add my latest venture into the ring as well, it's certainly not the quality of those examples but this use of iClone is paying a pretty nice dividend. For the last year and a half I've been selling iClone animated theatrical projection backdrops all over the world. These animated clips are being used by stage directors who are utilizing video projectors, to create backdrops for plays in schools, universities and theater groups around the world. Instead of building and painting large sets and backdrops they can project these video clips onto a large screen and then they only have to build small set pieces and props, it's huge savings all around. Having done "The Wizard of OZ " which is proving a pretty big success I added "The Sound of Music" and "The Little Mermaid" to the collection. Right now I'm working on "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Beauty and the Beast". It takes a few months of work to create a collection but right now at least it seems to be paying off.
Here's a clip from a review for a recent production in London...
Review of the Wizard of Oz – Leos Youth Group – Duchess Theatre London - February 18th 2016
"....The set piece routines for example, The Munchkin Sequence, The Poppy Field and The Haunted Forest were excellent. They were all enhanced, as was the show in general, by excellent Animated Backgrounds, provided by Small Wonder Studio. They were not just static scenes but were often part of the action; they and the excellent lighting plot by Tom Olding gave the stage at times, a filmic quality. The use of black and white backgrounds at the start and finish also resonated nicely with memories of the 1939 film: imaginative stuff..."
It all really started by accident when I did the OZ screens for a local production then went ahead and made the YouTube video public and all heck broke loose. The clips have been used in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, the US. Had and inquiry from Malaysia last week, it's kinda crazy I must say. Hope to launch a website, Animated Projections, soon to host all the videos in one place and make ordering easier. And It should also make it easier to mix-and-match different clips from all the collections so one could create their own package of backdrops. It's been a lot of fun and I really don't think it would have been as economical with anything else but iClone. Thanks Reallusion!!!
