As part of the 2019 Tokyo Midsummer Design Festa we were asked by Fujiji International and MovingStage to help develop the Amow Black Cat band.
A virtual band that would perform live on stage at a large music event.
This project required taking existing character designs along with provided motion capture and creating a fun finished 3D animated sequence which you can watch in full below.
Following the success of the live event we were subsequently asked to develop real time versions of the assets in Unity for a performance to be broadcast on live TV.
This required a new set of facial expressions to work with Faceware Studio so the band’s facial performances could be driven in real time along with their movment.
