The Motion Capture Summit UK is June 25-26, 2016 and will be held at Centroid Studios in London. We’ll be at this exciting event demoing Faceware’s latest headcams and software that have been used in such recent AAA titles as Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, XCOM2, EA Sports UFC 2, DOOM, and more.
This two day event will unite technology and drama for an intensive learning experience for actors, directors, animators and technicians. Attendees will be working in a professional motion capture stage, and will be taught by a group of industry veterans with specialization in all areas of mocap.
Our colleagues at The Mocap Vaults have an incredible line-up of tutors from various disciplines within the industry for this symposium. Here are just a few of the industry leaders who will be instructing and interacting at the Summit:

What’s behind The Motion Capture Summit UK?
What is the impetus for this international Summit of mocap movers and shakers? According to the rockstars at The Mocap Vaults, it’s to create a new wave of mocap superstars that are trained, prepped and ready for the job. With instructors from various fields of mocap sharing knowledge and precious advice, attendees will share in a new, higher level of performance capture than ever before.
We’ve heard there are still a few openings to attend the The Motion Capture Summit UK as an animator, director or technician – or as an observer, but space is very limited due to the unique immersion activities.
We’ll see you in the UK!
