What's been going on recently?
As ever I'm super busy working on a bunch of different projects at the same time....some of them well known, some of them top secret.
Here a little snifter of what's been happening....
Total War: Rome 2 presented at the 2012 Euro Gamer Expo
The Creative Assembly have spent the past few days at the 2012 Euro Gamer Expo. Whilst they were there they delivered a developer presentation, showing some of the thinking behind Rome 2.....and wouldn't you know it? Some of the Mo Cap fights & choreography from our last shoot made it into the presentation.
Check it out, we're @ 16 minutes !
Preview of Total War: Rome 2, the Siege of Carthage
Time to go to war!! Those marvelous chaps over at The Creative Assembly have just released some footage, from Rome 2, of the Siege of Carthage.....it's 149 BC and the Roman's are giving the Carthagians a bit of a kicking because, would you believe it, they refused to hand over their city, riches and arms on demand.
Oh, yes, are the vast majority of the sword fights were choreographed and performed by me and my team in the Mo Cap studio.
It's all pre-alpha footage.....so there's a lot more polish and excitement to come!
First view of Total War: Rome 2
Time for a sneak peak of the hotly anticipated Total War: Rome 2! Once again some of the Mo Cap fight choreography and performances from my last shoot have been used.
Top Secret project, filmed with Side at The Imaginarium
Fraid there's not a lot I can say about this one, as it's covered by a top-secret-mums-the-word contract. However, I can reveal that I've been working on a hotly anticipated, AAA, 2013 release!
This project saw me join the stunt team working on all of the Mo Cap fights and action sequences for the game. As you can imagine this shoot will see me fighting, falling and dying!
Top Secret project, working with Sony
Time to go undercover and work on a top secret, can't tell you anything project. All I can say on this one is that it's for a AAA game currently underdevelopment by Sony. Once again my team and I are fighting, falling and doing a big pile of fight choreography....all shot in Sony's own Motion Capture studio.
