Project description

This custom mask was inspired by the themes and visuals explored in the HBO show, Watchmen.

To help promote the TV show and to take part in the Watchmen Mask Off competition, we built this visually intriguing mask in Spark AR. We began by designing the gold mask, giving it a reflective sheen that could adapt to any surrounding lighting. Then, using multiple layers of face tracking, we distorted the mask and the user’s face, creating this jarring mash up of mask and face. The resulting effect helped us depict the theme of identity, which plays a major role in the TV show. Finally, using appropriate typefaces, we listed the show name up top, alongside the channel users could watch it on, and the premiere data.
