"Exercising the potential in Creature
& Fantasy Character Performance"
Creature Bionics is a U.K based character development and performance specialist, focusing on Creature, Fantasy and CG characters for film/tv and video game productions. Our existence is for the purpose of developing bespoke pipelines and providing services for clients that help to achieve the level of performance needed for their non-human characters.
From Concept To Performance
In-depth knowledge of the character's plot/history is fundamental to discovering and creating their psychology, intentions, behaviour and locomotion.
We will work with you and your team to create the pipeline needed for the development of your characters, then translate the information into a practical format and supervise throughout the process.
Providing Practical Effects
We develop and manufacture creature rigs that enable the actor/performer to imitate the skeleton design of a specific creature or fantasy character. This helps the actor/performer to create a more realistic performance, as well as provide better data for VFX referencing and motion capture.
Providing Motion Capture Data
We own 2 Xsens mvn portable suits, which means we can provide the motion capture performance remotely or on location. For performances that require a high volume of actors/performers or data that is compatible with all of our creature rigs, we have partnerships with motion capture studios that have an optical system in place with an existing set-up for the use of our rigs.
Providing The Talent
Our performance team have a profound understanding of how to embody and emulate non-human characters. We can provide the character performance needed, help to discover new talent through our casting workshops, or train the existing cast on board.
