在本文中,我们论证了动作捕捉驱动的研究的价值,它将视听分析推向表演的方向,将舞者/研究者整合到电影空间中。与通过视听媒体而非书面媒体传播其研究结果的视频从业者的工作一样,本工作通过将实践导向的方法应用于运动图像分析,寻求与Catherine Grant和Brad Haseman所称的“表现性研究”相结合。通过对电影和舞蹈形式的物理和虚拟的体现,我们试图更好地理解舞蹈融入电影空间的形式含义,以及影响电影制作人叙事和风格选择的物质条件。运动可视化工具(Movement Visualization Tool, mv Tool)是一种虚拟的研究环境,可以对多个agent的运动产生实时反馈。可达性运动捕捉技术呈现出移动主体的抽象骨架,使用基于颜色和历史轨迹的过滤器提供空间中运动路径的信息。该工具还可以复制移动框架美学,允许构建的移动和虚拟构建的相机参与表演对话。我们使用mv工具和录像方法来重现和传播两个案例:来自拉班/巴尔特涅夫运动研究的动作尺度和来自叙事电影的舞蹈序列。我们不是从现有的视听内容出发,而是假设,重新创造动作短语的行为导致了对舞蹈编排的更深层次的理解,在电影例子中,是对导致它们创造的正式实践的理解。
