LONDON, U.K. Monday 13th July 2015, 6:30pm – 9:30pm
This Masterclass with Carrie Thiel is designed to give you an overview of Performance (Motion) Capture and how works; and introduce the skills, demands and physical elements needed to bring out your best in this medium.
Our world is changing and so is how we film it. Motion Capture (MoCap) is being used on a regular basis these days. However the VFX realm of film, television and video games presents unique nuances and challenges. Actors are challenged to perform in stark and unnatural settings, with no sets, no costumes and often no other actors to react with. On top of this, if you haven’t met the latest technology before, it can be a little daunting when auditioning or performing with it for the first time. So you need to get familiar with this popular platform of work and be ready for the show which is laden with digital effects!
Carrie Thiel is one of the early creatives to have been involved with Motion Capture through her work on the Lord of the Rings Triology, where she needed to develop the performance techniques and considerations necessary while they were filming.
Our Evening Masterclass with Carrie begins with a tutorial and your opportunity to discover more about the ins and outs of this industry. This is chased by a workshop session where you get on your feet and work with Carrie as a ‘mocap director’, in learning some of the physical and performance skills you need to successfully work in this field.
PLEASE NOTE: This is an introductory masterclass and opportunity to work with Carrie, and as such IN THIS SESSION WE WILL NOT BE IN A MOTION CAPTURE STUDIO OR WORKING IN MOTION CAPTURE SUITS
If you would like to take the next step to training in a motion capture studio, let us know and we can book you onto our next available Performance Capture Intensive or arrange an individual MOCAP 101 session.
