Cool 3D visualization captures the motion of famous olympic athletes

Felix Deimann—a motion designer based in Dortmund, Germany—created this awesome video that captures the motion of famous olympic athletes like Nadia Comăneci, Michael Phelps, the US basketball Dream Team and Usain Bolt, turning it into a continuous flow of beautiful abstract shapes.

This is Deimann's thesis project:

Movements of famous Olympians where digitalised into 3D through motion tracking and rotoscoping of original footage of Olympic competitions. Camera motions and playback speed of the footage were borrowed and the movements of the athletes were recreated frame by frame.
