Motion and performance capture experts The Imaginarium Studios take a story-led approach to technology. The studio has designed a pipeline that optimises the motion capture processes at every stage – pre-production, production and post-production.
Using a custom marker set and retro-reflective body markers, the system of more than 50 optical motion capture cameras records actors body movement in intense detail. Head-mounted cameras can track every movement of the human face, no matter how subtle.
The studio works closely with clients to help create concepts, plan shots and rig characters. With a dedicated studio space in London, The Imaginarium Studios also travels with productions where its mobile optical system tracks and records body data in almost any situation and location. Recent work by the studio includes Star Wars Force Awakens and Netflix’s Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle film.
