The installation consists of 3 separate Max applications and a C# application. 1) Composer: does the main part of the work, storyboard, slow motion with frame interpolation, composing (design elements, color grading, noise grain overlay), approve recording. 2) Grabber: records camera input into a circular buffer and sends it to the composer patch on request. 3) Recorder: records slomo playback. 4) Kinect tracker (C#) that chooses the person closest to the dot on the pavement and sends info about his/her position to the composer application.
The applications are interconnected via networking protocols.
Biggest challenge was to properly synchronize the various independent processes throughout the various phases of the storyboard.
