Dance Montage

A recipe for making a montage of dancers dance any dance you want

Published on 3 April 2019


Proposed Process


  1. Create archive of film.
  2. Run a pose detection algorithm on all of it, outputing joint data of the detected poses. (Dataset A)
  3. Film some fresh choreography.
  4. Run the pose detection algorithm on this. Again, outputting joint data. (Dataset B)
  5. Run an algorithm that, for each frame, of B finds the pose from the archive (A), that is most similar.
  6. Place the most similar frames in order and export as a film.

Things we need

Pose detection algorithm. Can use openpose - tick.

Fresh choreography. I can put on some trousers and then I’ll be right with you - tick.

Algorithm that can find the most similar pose . Need some time to develop an optimal one of these, but won’t be too hard.

Mood board

Mario Klingemann is doing cool things GANs.
