Providing Practical Effects
Our creature performance rigs are designed to act as additional limbs to help an actor/performer imitate the skeleton/anatomy of a specific creature/fantasy character for performance purposes. The rigs are solely operated by the movement of the individual’s body and require no additional support.
The benefits of an actor/performer having a similar physicality as their character, helps them to become more grounded and connected to the character, which will have a greater impact
on their performance. Simultaneously, this evokes a better performance from fellow cast members who are involved within a scene and gives the director a better visual reference. For VFX, it provides better reference material collected for post-production purposes.
Here is a display of some of our rigs that have been developed and manufactured
by Creature Bionics. Please select the image for more details about the rig.
MOTION CAPTURE RIGS
Some of our creature rigs are designed for creating better data for capturing a creature performance. The objective alongside providing a realistic performance is to help the animation team minimise the time needed in post-production for adding the additional limbs, their position and movement.
Demo test using the mini arm extensions (top video) and normal arm extensions (bottom video) with the Xsens link system.
Demo test using the carbon arm extensions and creature at motion capture studio, Centroid.
