The Lighthouse Keeper
This 2 part animated short was made by Gerald O'Brien and his team at Gobstar Films using Realtime graphics entirely. The motion captured elements were achieved using a Perception Neuron suit (from Anamo) - an inertial motion capture facility leading to very a fast production time.
"It meant a significant upgrade in out animation output" - Gerald O'Brien CEO, Gobstar Films 2020
This is a heartwarming story of a brother and sister who take their mother on a road trip down memory lane. Their mother Maire has been feeling rather forgetful lately and Benji and Jules have different opinions on the matter. For Jules its clear, "put mum in a nursing home and lose her forever? No chance!" For Benji it is equally clear, "beware of the drowning mans grip".
About: There will be two versions of this film: one for those looking to experience VR and one for those who like a more traditional type of film. (RoKoKo Smart Suit provided by AnamoLABS-Cork).
