Motion capture

Human Dynamo Workshop can fabricate motion capture helmets and masks. Using 3D scans of an actor's face and head shape, we vacuum form masks for makeup artists to create dots that maintain continuity between shooting days. We then digitally model and manufacture moulds to cast the helmet shell from fiberglass or carbon fiber, creating a custom made helmet that will fit an individual actors head.


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.
