Are you a Creative Business or Sole Trader working in the South West’s Creative Sector? Want to know more about Motion Capture technology, the steps involved and trial how it could develop your business?

Creatives operating in the South West are invited to visit CAMERA’s new Innovation Studio, at the Bottle Yard Bristol, installed with the latest Motion Capture technology, character animation software and more. 

During a fun-packed and informative day, you’ll actively participate in live Motion Capture, shooting footage to animate a ready-made metahuman character. You’ll also learn ways to capture and animate characters for XR and immersive experiences in affordable DIY setups.

Located in the South West’s premier TV & Media Production quarter, The Bottle Yard in Bristol, the newly opened Innovation Studio is fitted with a suite of facilities to support CAMERA’s world-leading research at the University of Bath. You can learn more about the other awesome production studios based in the region here.

Via interactive and easy to digest presentation, the team will also outline the latest research and explain what’s possible whether choosing to capture faces, bodies in motion, or animals.

You can also expect data sets of high quality motion capture to take away and utilise in your own business environment, a better understanding of avatar creation, character design, 3D animation, volumetric capture, an understanding of how motion capture can achieve human and animal movement at a faster rate and in a more naturalistic way than traditional asset animation and a great opportunity to network with other creatives interested in, or with experience of digital content creation. 

Thanks to European Structural and Investment Funds CAMERA are able to offer these sessions entirely free, once proof of your eligibility has been checked.

The sessions will run every Thursday in July, from 9.30 to 17.30 and allocation will be first come first served. If interested to attend please fill out an application form as your expression of interest.
