Browse the site to learn more about us and our motion capture capabilities and animation projects.
If we’ve learned one thing at MadMarker Studios, it’s that no two clients are ever the same. This means each project is a chance for us to reinvent the wheel and come up with something new and creative. We’ve successfully worked with many clients in the past, and invite you to take a look at our portfolio to get an idea of our animation style and approach.
A Future with a View
From the onset, there were very high expectations surrounding this project. Being chosen as the motion capture partner was an honor and with it came a great responsibility to deliver in an efficient and timely fashion. We succeeded in delivering over 10K seconds of animation in two months
What We Offer
Beginning - Middle - End
Performance/ Motion Capture is at the heart of what we do, but we are a full-service creative studio. If you want to produce something sensational but don’t know where to start, we are fully loaded to drive the whole production process in-house: from big picture conceptualization and shot lists for one or two performers to full cinematic scenes with multiple characters. Additionally we can provide character design and creation. We also offer our services a la carte, so if you have existing characters, songs, or messaging, we can parachute into any part of the creative process and produce high-quality work that is seamlessly consistent with your brand.
MadMarker Studios has the largest capture stage in the Midwest and one of the largest in the country at close to 4000sf. We are set up for full performance capture including HMC for Facial capture, body capture and gloves for detailed finger movement. Additionally, we work with some amazing performance capture artists. If you can imagine it, we can help you create it!
2D & 3D Animation
Providing Realism and Style
It wouldn't make sense for a motion capture studio to not be able to provide the finished product! We take great pride in transferring the motion capture data into amazing 3D and yes, 2D Animations for our clients. This service is flexible and can be customized to fit your needs, whether it’s for video games, film, TV, or apps, we’ve worked on many challenging projects, and have the experience to take your project to the next level.
Rigging & Cleaning
Making it Work
Some clients already have their motion capture completed, but need help getting the data to be as they intended. Using our pipeline, we can bring that motion into our system and kick out cleaned and solved data that is ready to be placed on your characters upon delivery. Or if you need help getting your character properly rigged, we will create a custom rig so that movement flows seamlessly.
