Performance Capture Training

It is now not enough to have ‘done motion capture’.  Do you ‘do’ it well?

Captivate was the first company in the U.K. and Australia to offer training in acting and performance for Motion Capture and Performance Capture.  Our unique courses focus on getting the best performance for each individual, using both their existing skill sets and by developing new skills.    All our courses are taught by industry professionals who are established tutors, directors and performers, with extensive experience in fight and action, movement, physical theatre, and the technical side of mocap.

Our training caters to all experience levels – whether those stepping into the mo-cap suit for the first time, or those experienced motion capture artists who would like to enhance their skills.  Captivate’s courses offer you the opportunity to train away from the pressure of a shooting schedule, where you can take time to explore, make mistakes and learn how to work to your best in this exciting field.

The ‘Mocap-101 Workshop’ is a one-day introduction to performing in the ‘mo-cap volume’, and is perfect for those just entering the field.  This workshop it tailored to each group, on request (U.K.).

The Mocap Experience Melbourne is a two-day intensive course that takes you beyond the introduction and into the craft of mocap performance: to the acting and movement choices which lead you to your best work in this medium (Australia).

Our Performance Capture Intensive Courses offer in-depth five-day training in acting, physical performance and action and its application to Motion Capture and Performance Capture, for those who would like to widen their skill base or who are pursuing a career as a Performance Capture Artist (U.K.).

We also offer training for cast members who will work in motion capture, to introduce them to the technical and artistic considerations for their role.  Similarly we offer Professional Development sessions for Directors and Producers who would like to experiment and explore the possibilities and limitations of  ‘mo-cap’ prior to production.

For casts, directors and training institutions, we tailor the motion capture training to what you require.
