Motion capture

Human Dynamo Workshop can fabricate motion capture helmets and masks. We CNC router mill actors faces and head shapes from 3D scans. From these we can vacuum form masks for makeup artists to create dots that maintain continuity between shooting days. We also fabricate the helmets ourselves, made to fit individual actors head shapes.


The helmet is cast from woven fibreglass and is sanded smooth. We make the straps and buckles and fittings ourselves and each helmet is fitted perfectly to the actor's head shape and size.

Our CNC Routers can perfectly replicate an actor's face so that we can create accurate masks for the motion capture process.
