Living Sasquatch

With Carmichael Lynch for Jack Link's

Bring Sasquatch to life with this first of a kind augmented reality experience.

While I was a technical lead at Carmichael Lynch we collaborated with Boffswana to create this first of a kind augmented reality experience. Boffswana handled the AR work and I worked on the server architecture and video recording system to record the user experience.

Users could script up to six different animations that could be played back in sequence for Sasquatch to act out.

The build-in screen recorder we built allowed the ability to record composited video of the user’s webcam overlayed with the 3D Sasquatch. I worked on the prototype for this process and workout some of the compositing and transfer issues before handing over the framework to Boffswana.

Users from around the world created and shared videos, and people could rate the videos as well. I worked on the server and storage architecture to make sure everyone’s videos encoded and loaded fast, no matter where they were in the world.
