Few forms of martial-arts are as challenging to capture as Wushu. The speed, torque and breaks, that makes Wushu the unmistakable stable of china-town films, are one of the hardest types of movements to capture. Compound this with the need for at least two performers interacting with each other in long, mid and short distance hits and grapples, and you have a recipe for mocap disaster.
For this test we enlisted the help of IC-Movement London's premiere resource of movement performers. After listing our technical requirements ("hi, we'd like two baddass wushu people, please!"), Adam Rae provided us with 2 world class wushu experts. Steve Coleman and Ivo Arsts (pictured below).
Thanks to our beloved mocap hardware we were able to record almost 26 minutes of challenging fight routines in a single (short) day of capture.
If your project requires fast paced action, weapons and multiple performers, well, now you know where to go. ;)
