Tutors and Training

Captivate Action Ltd. has a team of highly experienced and innovative Tutors, who are also working directors and performers.

We provide training in Performance Capture (motion capture) to Performers, Directors and Creatives.  This is catered specifically to what each person needs: from a technical overview and production considerations, to what to expect when working on the mo-cap stage, to how to bring out the best performance in this medium.

This training caters for those who are new to Performance Capture (and for example, who would like to gain insight and understanding into how this medium works before starting production), and also for those already experienced and who would like to expand their skills.


Director training sessions are set up on a tailored basis to cover what each person needs from the experience.  Individual sessions and small group session are available.

Performer training is available through our workshops and courses, or alternatively through private tuition.  We also provide sessions and courses to learning institutions.

Cast training is available for specific projects, catered again to what is required – whether to introduce performers to the medium, or give more specific skills training.
