How does the MoCap Troupe work?

The MoCap Troupe meet regularly to train together in terms of fitness and continued professional development in motion capture performance techniques, creature performance and movement analysis as well as in: Combat, Stilt work, Animal studies, Feldenkrais and working with renowned physical Theatre Companies such as Complicite to strengthen group performance skills.

How can we work for you?

If you are a Casting Director, Director, Producer, Production Company or Motion Capture Studio looking to cast and work with either individuals or a group of performers who are all use to working together, then we are the go-to Troupe from which to potentially cast.

Furthermore, if your production needs a Troupe of actors who are highly skilled physically and specialise particularly in creature performance, we can be hired for pre-production research & development phases as well as for production. We can also assist during post production as actor references for animation and VFX teams.

Movement Director Sarah Perry can be booked as a movement coordinator on your project to work with the Troupe & other cast members on and off set to organise any potential trainings necessary for the project and to rehearse and workshop particular characters, creatures, movement scenes or concepts.

Who we work for

• TV, Film, Games, Music & Media Productions looking for performers suitable for Mocap and/or Creature work
• VFX & Animation companies looking for actors for reference material and assistance in character work
• Educational institutions looking for Actors for Animation & Mocap projects
• Theatre & site specific projects looking for physical and creature like performers
