Head In The Clouds

Head In The Clouds Festival returned to Los Angeles this summer with new interactive content created by Immanent. This year featured a new and improved CLO, the character mascot of 88rising, who danced to the music, sang along to songs, and took breaks in-between performances to read Tweets out-loud. Fans would tweet their messages to CLO who read the best ones on stage. Microsoft built an AI application to recreate the voice of Kyedae to read the tweets. We used Notch VFX to display the tweet messages, generate CLO’s mouth movements through audio-reaction, and puppet her animations using an Xbox controller. At sundown a custom animation we created took the audience's focus from the LED screen to the projection objects. Next stop IMMANENT will be joining the HITC team again in Jakarta and Manila in December
