Tutors and Training

Captivate Action has a team of highly experienced and innovative Tutors, who are all working directors and performers.

Training for Performers

We provide training for actors in Performance Capture/Motion Capture, Dramatic Combat and Movement.  A range of courses are regularly run through our own Captivate Workshops and through direct work with Drama Training Institutions, Universities and Schools.   We also have a team of specialists in other physical performance areas who we regularly invite in as guest tutors.

Training for Directors and Creatives

Captivate offers training for working with specialist areas such as Action and Performance Capture. This is catered specifically to what each person needs: from a technical overview and production considerations, to what to expect when working on the mocap stage, to how to bring out the best performance in each medium.
