ICTheatre Brighton on ITV

15 July, 2022

Last night ICTheatre Brighton were featured on ITV Meridian showcasing our brand new motion capture suite, did you catch us live?

“Motion capture is the special effects technology that famously transformed actor Andy Serkis into Gollum for Lord of the Rings, the characters of Avatar, and more recently created the dancing holograms of Abba.

It’s also the latest technology that has been brought to a theatre school outside Brighton.

The Institute for Contemporary Theatre in Portslade is teaching students how to act as all manner of characters and creatures – through digital avatars.

The result is that actors are becoming video game characters, fighting in real time.”
