Behind the Scenes Look at Motion Capture Graphics


This TVWriter™ minion may well be one of the few people in the U.S. who has seen the film CHAPPIE, and not only did I watch, I thoroughly enjoyed what I saw.

While I was watching, unbeknownst to me at the time, I was also getting a slightly, hmm, altered look at an actor who since become one of my faves: Sharlto Copley. (And if you don’t know who he is or what he’s done that’s so great, well, first there’s CHAPPIE, and in a very close second, then there’s POWERS, a terrific TV series seen by even fewer people who’ve seen CHAPPIE. (But that’s a story for another day.)

My Sharlto Copley adoration has kept me busy google for every mention of his name. This most recent interweb find is my best yet because not only does it work for me it also should be really damned interesting to anyone into writing/directing/producing the next big CGI sci-fi masterpiece:
