Silhouettes of Jazz

This animated short movie outlines the history of traditional jazz music in a virtual walkthrough of a shadow art museum.

Martin Sebastian Senn is a student at the Federal Institute of Technology at Zurich (ETH). After completing an education with a strong emphasis on art at Liceo Artistico he began to study Computer Science at ETH in 2006. His motivation was to incorporate art with technical aspects, which is the case in the field of animation and visual effects, a subject he have always been very interested in. As special effects in feature films are getting more and more complex, the use of computers in this subject is gaining in importance. His main goal is to get experience in the field of computer graphics in order to complement his artistic skills and knowledge.
