Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) recently hosted the inaugural Motion Capture Performance Workshop at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia.
At the workshop, participating actors were schooled in the acting skills necessary to perform in a motion capture environment.
The actors were given direction on motion capture acting that included sessions on honing their acting while being exposed to realtime production and live capture using Reallusion iClone, Motion Live and the Xsens Awinda motion capture suits.
See how it went in the videos below.
The two-day workshop – the only one of its kind originating in the United States – was produced by the College of the Arts Office of Educational Outreach and hosted by the School of Film, Media & Theatre and the CMII.
Leaders of the workshop included Mary Emily O’Bradovich, professional actor with People Store and academic professional at Georgia State focusing on movement and acting, James C. Martin, professor of practice at Georgia State teaching virtual reality (VR) production and VR/AR Asset Creation, and Michelle Ladd, motion capture director, fight director and stunt performer with RE:Action Stunts and Broad-Motion Entertainment.
