Action Actor's Academy

Be an action star!

At Mind’s Eye Tribe: Action Actor’s Academy, we teach performers the necessary skills to become well-rounded, working Action Actors. We specialize in Character Study, Action Fighting, Swords, Tactical (guns) and Creature Performance for Motion Capture Performance (MOCAP/PCAP), Film and Television. In addition to mastering new skill sets and sharpening their instincts, performers will learn essential rules, techniques and expectations to succeed on the motion capture stage and beyond. We produce versatile actors, action actors and stunt performers, who in turn bring their training and talent to the world.

Where do I start?

Motion Capture Essentials

If you want to be the best, then your training starts here.

Motion Capture Essentials is for the beginning or experienced actor, stunt, or physical performer wanting to understand and better prepare for work in Performance Capture.

Actors, Stunt-people and Specialty performers alike will benefit from the essential skills covered as they advance and evolve the craft so that you are fully prepared to understand everything involved with both Cinematic (cut scenes) and Navigation Performances (the full scope of movements needed to drive the characters in video games and film). Including the process, rules, and variables often associated with this type of performance capture.
