Call of Duty: Exo Zombies

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.

Client: Axis Animation / Grey Box / Six Foot

Exodus: Gods and Kings

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.

Dr Who

Flatline

Client: axisVFX / BBC

The Eighth Season of Dr Who starring Peter Capaldi, has served up a feast of frightful enemies, yet none more creepy and terrifying than the 'Boneless' - ​beings from another plane with the ability to absorb humans and transform them into static, two-dimensional entities trapped as paintings and murals.

Audiomotion teamed up with axisVFX and director Douglas Mackinnon to capture the ​glitchy, distorted and ethereal essence of the sinister shapeshifters​ who rise from their 2D ​forms to become 3-dimensional menaces, all through the use of motion capture. Flatline aired on 18th October on BBC1.
