“Here and Then” for Dolby Atmos
Commissioned by Dolby to showcase Dolby Atmos moving sound and Dolby Vision HDR technology, Here and Then is a 7 minute film, captured entirely in-camera in a fraction of a second. The film was created using multiple light-sources filmed simultaneously, each with the capacity to move at several times the speed of sound, the content is suspended in time, while changing light moves within the frozen moments. As sound and light change spatially, the optical devices alter the appearance of the scene.
This work was exhibited at the Dolby Gallery in San Francisco - a 62 foot wide screen with 82 speakers, enabling visuals and audio to be placed precisely within the space. Submitted here is a one minute, 4k, HDR version. The tech used to create this work was developed and patented by Van de Roer and his studio Satellite Lab during a residency at the New Museum in NY.
