The goal of the EU-project first.stage is to research, design, develop, evaluate, and showcase natural user interfaces that improve previsualisation in film, animation, and the performing arts by speaking the language of the artist rather than that of a technician, providing efficient workflows, and offering the high degree of control required by practitioners. This set of previs tools should be easy to use — requiring less training than current software, efficient — requiring less man-hours, and effective — offering the same level of precision and control as the specialist tools employed at the moment. It should further support distributed teamwork, as production teams are often spread over many places and only meet in person for short bursts.
