September 29 – 30, 2018
Georgia State University College of the Arts invites you to join our Motion Capture Performance Workshop. Hosted by the School of Film, Media & Theatre and the Creative Media Industries Institute, participants will gain insider knowledge on the acting and technical skills needed to perform in a Motion Capture environment. Performers will develop a character through acting and movement training, then see their avatar realized in MoCap application and real-time animation in a motion capture studio. Professors and Industry professionals will guide attendees through performance techniques, motion capture processes, and on-set expectations. These skills have long been necessary in the video game industry and are rapidly becoming a must-have in the performer’s tool-bag for film and TV. More commonly, producers and directors are expecting this skill set and look for these particular abilities in performers of all types.
Mary Emily O’Bradovich: Professional Actor with People Store and Academic Professional at Georgia State focusing on movement and acting,
James C. Martin: Professor of Practice teaching VR Production and VR/AR Asset Creation.

These instructors have a wealth of expertise and knowledge in movement and acting skills, specific motion capture performance requirements, the technical aspects of motion capture and animation, and cutting-edge technologies in animation and visual effects.
Through hands-on experience, attendees of the Motion Capture Performance Workshop can expect to gain direct industry insight and an awareness of technical requirements of motion capture performance; learn industry specific terminology; and hone the acting skills needed to be successful in the world of virtual cinematography. Participants will leave the workshop with an electronic copy of their personalized animated avatar motion.
