The Imaginarium is not purely a dry hire studio. It does provide body capture, facial capture, and full performance capture with sound, but it also offers pre- and post-visualisation services with virtual camera, live action set capture, and site-specific real time capture for live performance events.
From consultation, casting, script and character development, rehearsal and movement coaching, through to pre-production and principle photography, our goal is to provide a bespoke service in order to guide the client and help bring their virtual character concepts to life, whether they are based in fantasy or reality, photo-realistically rendered or highly stylised, for film, games or television.
The Imaginarium’s entire operation is centred around the notion that it is not just the capturing of a truthful performance by an actor/dancer/performer that ensures great results. Equally important is retaining and protecting the fidelity of that performance. This is achieved by in-house handling of data. From tracking to solving and rigging, the performance is creatively monitored and quality controlled. The performance can be delivered in a number of ways depending on the client’s requirements, from clean motion capture data to full body and facial solve on target rigs.
Whether you require simple body capture, or full consultancy and production services, The Imaginarium is ready to meet your creative challenges.
