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.
Face Your Fears

Audiomotion are proud to announce our collaboration on Alien: Isolation, developed by Creative Assembly and published by Sega. We shot over two weeks worth of full performance capture and trailer sequences with a stellar cast and crew, recreating each intricate scene with scrupulous planning, prop consideration and set construction.
Alien: Isolation shows performance capture at its best, crafting realism through subtle face and body movements. The end result is a compelling performance, filled with believable emotion, as Ripley and co face their fears in a game of survival.

From French Tale To Feature Film
Audiomotion are proud to announce their involvement in a new full length, animated feature, "Evolution Man".
The French production, featuring actor and comic Jamel Debbouze is based on a famous children's novel and was shot using Performance Capture throughout. The film is already shaping up to be one of the biggest French releases of 2015!
Audiomotion worked together with the all French cast and crew for the 8 week shoot, capturing up to 30 actors, dancers & acrobats and delivering over 27 hours of animation. Having a fully equipped location rig meant that we were able to continue shooting in Oxford at the same time.
