Run For Your Life is also an offering on Actor Core. It features footage of people feeing unspecified danger in a big city.
Bank Heist is set of motion available for purchase from Actor Core a service that offers low cost motions and characters for media producers.
Working with Joop Katana from The Stunt Collective, we designed all the action for our pack. We shot these scenes at The University of Central Florida.
Our friends from The DAVE School came by to shoot scenes for their final projects.
For our first demo we set out to do a two minute-scene shot as one continuous take. We had three actors on our mocap stage and a custom virtual camera of our own design. After the shoot we did some basic facial animation and lighting tweaks but as you will see on the special behind the scenes video it was 90% finished when we said "cut".
In addition to working out our Vicon to UE4 pipeline, we incorporated a major location change, animated props like robots and spaceships, and prop manipulation that required advanced rigging to allow characters to pass "the box" from ship to courier to drone. Special thanks to our actors: Emilie Scheetz, Kat Williams, Kuraun Pitter and Tre Mosley
Props make all the difference. Shooting something as simple as door opening is SO much better when an actor can interact with it physically. We have commission custom stairs and ramps, purchased a small arsenal of airsoft weapons, and find you can do a LOT with apple boxes and scaffolding,
