Client: FreeStyleGames / Activision
Audiomotion Studios are pleased to announce our collaboration with FreeStyleGames and Activision in the recently launched Guitar Hero Live.
We shot over 2 weeks of performance capture previs, tracking the musicians and the player camera which would later drive the motion control rig for the live action shots. With fully replica stage settings, the band members could seamlessly perform each track with all the atmosphere and energy of a live concert.
Brian Mitchell of Audiomotion explains "We were delighted to be involved with such a high profile franchise as Guitar Hero. Building some of the bigger stage sets really push our system to the limits. These shoots always have a great atmosphere, but it relies heavily on early access to the project which enabled our collaboration to achieve the very best results."
A New Breed of Enemy
Client: Axis Animation / Activision
The Exo Zombies co-op experience is all-new to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC. This new mode brings the movements, abilities, and weapons of the exoskeleton into battle against the undead.
Audiomotion joined with Axis Animation and a team of stunt performers and free runners to deliver the high action, high impact Exo Zombie trailer.
Biblical Epic Brought To Life
Client: MPC / 20th Century Fox
Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings brings new life to the biblical tale of defiant leader Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses.
The motion capture setup for Exodus was a highly challenging endeavour and epic in terms of scale and complexity. Capturing eight horses, paired with chariots with multiple stunt performers meant capturing 400 markers moving at considerable speed. The week long horse shoot was followed by another week of stunt and crowd work for MPC's ALICE system generating tens of thousands of extra soldiers.
