A large part of the performance capture work that comes from the video game sector is for character locomotion. It is an incredibly specific field and there are very few people that understand it and even fewer that can do it well. Every walk, run, turn, jump, gunshot, interaction and hundreds of other moves must be captured to bring a game character to life. An actor may spend five days in a studio just to record the basic patterns for a single character’s locomotion.

Oliver Hollis-Leick has been working with locomotion sets for eighteen years. He has created characters in AAA games like Rage 2, Hitman, Quantum Break, Alan Wake, Homefront: The Revolution, Until Dawn, The Sniper Elite series, Dead Island and many, many more.

In this one day intensive, Oliver will be teaching you how to make sense of the complex network of moves that will be presented to you, how to create nuanced, authentic characters quickly, how to give animators what they need and offer creative solutions. We will analyse existing games to understand the needs of the industry and the specifics of the artwork and then spend the day working through real move sets to become intimately familiar with real world examples. A very physical day!

Date & Time: Saturday July 27th 2019 - 10am to 5pm
