Motion Capture Workshop at BAF

Guest blogger: Zara Hussain, Bradford College Animation Student

Let the festival begin! It has been such a busy day so far... worth it though. This morning I attended the Motion Capture Workshop.

Thankfully I ran into the guy leading the workshop, Karl Abson. If it wasn't for him, I would have been running around Bradford trying to find the venue! I ended up getting to rummage through the workshop area and talk to Karl, and through this one to one and the workshop, I did learn a lot.

Did you know that all the equipment they were using is worth quarter of a million pounds?
That it was originally made for military defences?
And, that the motion capture suits are incredibly clingy?

I'm not that interested in motion capture, but after attending this workshop my mind was completely blown away! It was that good!

This is definitely a job you could never grow bored of.

Overall, the lecturers were incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about what they do and their presentation was definitely worth the time. Playing with swords in a practical session is AMAZING!

Karl is working on several projects including motion capture using animals. Have a look at his blog, you will not be disappointed.
