The Actors Centre

Combat for Motion Capture

WHAT IS IT? This is an introductory session to how we can best perform combat for motion capture/performance capture. HOW WILL IT WORK? After a tutorial on the technology and industry, we will be introduced to what happens on a mocap shoot, and what you will need to know as an actor. We will then explore how this applies to combat in mocap specifically, and how you can bring out your best work when on the job. The session will culminate in a ‘mock’ mocap shoot where you will be directed in a short combat scene. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? This session is open to people of all ranges of experience - those with previous mocap experience can be pushed in the performance, while those who have never before been in the mocap volume will learn how it all works. It will give you a solid insight into this industry so that when you walk into your next job, you can be well-prepared to know what best complements this exciting medium. Please come with appropriate movement clothes and shoes. Price: £30.
