SPLICE BOYS are a Shanghai-based creative team specializing in professional camera array effects. Operating a state of the art multi-camera rig with an emphasis on spatial time bending, motion blur, events activations and 3D light sculpting, this young Aussie team produces smooth, sharp visual effects ideal for modern film and advertising production.
The rig or multi camera array, is made up of 96 DSLR cameras that can fire either in sync or progressively to make a video sequence. A custom developed triggering system controls speed and motion while variables in distance, shape and light are managed by an expert production team.
This young Aussie team was founded by Tom Brandon and Richard Kendall. With a solid background in fine art and scientific photography, film and online marketing, this media-savvy creative team bring an innovative approach to experimental motion capture.
So what makes Splice Boys stand out in a crowded creative market? Unlike many CGI dependent production houses, this team works almost entirely in camera, with an extensive rig set-up, painstaking planning and a can-do approach to challenging location shoots and ambitious briefs.
Fusing experimental image delay technique with a solid pop-culture aesthetic, the team is equally adept at blockbuster effects and slick advertising campaigns as experimental shorts and innovative visual pops.
