FMX 2014 (April 22-25, Stuttgart, Germany), Europe's renowned conference for the makers of the digital entertainment industry, is proud to welcome the world-famous and foremost "performance-capture" pioneer and actor Andy Serkis to Stuttgart. Andy Serkis' presentation is one of this year's highlighted keynotes at FMX 2014.
Andy Serkis has advanced the craft of performance capture, where an actor's movements and expressions are recorded and translated to form the performance used by animators to bring a digital character to life. He is best-known for his motion capture acting and voice work for CG characters such as Gollum in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy and most recently The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey. At FMX he provides an "Early Look at Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" for which Weta Digital are again handling the visual effects.
