Simon FitzKit...In The Field!

Ooh! Faced! | October 30, 2007

I did facial motion capture (emotion capture? eh? Ehhhh???) for Epic Games in Cary. They’re the company that made Gears of War, for those of you who are out of the loop. They’re also the company behind Jazz Jackrabbit, Jill of the Jungle, and most importantly to this post: the Unreal Tournament series.

Because I’m responsible for every male facial movement in the long-awaited Unreal Tournament III (my friend Katie did the female emotion capture in it).

They’re using new emotion-capture software, and it’s pretty badass. If you want to see the kind of subtle movements it picks up, why not watch the trailer and keep your eyes open for a signature Fit-KitzSimons eyebrow-twitch in the last scene?

I promise, I’ll be glad you did.

    You’ll have like 30,000 hits and your message board will be full.

    Executive will say, “Who was that mask-rendered man?”
