3d tracking on mobile phone shot

Yesterday David (our young new talented 2d animator) and I were walking to the bakery to grab some sandwiches and in the flow of the conversation we started talking about 3d tracking. For a mysterious reason that even google doesnt know, we had the compulsory need to track something.

But we had no camera on hand, just a mobile phone. No problem, smartphones are supposed (its amazing how we believe ads) to shoot videos ! So we gave it a try and here is the fun result after an afternoon of cam tracking and some animation + film grading/degrading for hiding the bad shadows and comp hehehe 🙂

Maybe if spare time is available (!) I can make a little making of video. Tracking was done using Syntheyes.

By the way the 3d model is a CC model taken from  www.blendswap.com : FLOPSY by hjmediastudios
