DID YOU KNOW?
The Technicolor Games team has delivered 8,878 minutes of animation so far this year!
We caught up with Head of Department, Selvam, to deep dive into our animation service offering.
How are we bringing games to the next level?
Our talented animators breathe life into some of the most well-known games in the world. When we are briefed on a new project, we ensure to crew it with the most relevant and suited animators.
Whether it’s characters, creatures, animals or vehicles, we specialize in crafting meticulously hand-keyed animations with a keen narrative intuition to orchestrate cinematic sequences by framing and animating cameras effectively.
Our team also boasts extensive experience in crafting performance-captured facial animations to convey heightened emotions and expressions across a variety of game genres.
And, the team’s knowledge doesn’t end there. We have expertise in previsualization for motion capture shoots, as well as constructing scenes that incorporate characters, cameras and precise duration locking.
What are our MoCap capabilities?
A distinct realm of our proficiency lies in refining motion capture animations for both gameplay and cinematic sequences. Leveraging a comprehensive grasp of the animation pipeline, our team ensures the delivery of top-tier animations that preserve the subtleties of the original motion capture data.
Where do we go beyond the game?
We pride ourselves in the ability to polish motion-captured animations up to the highest standard. The goal is to always create the authentic body animations and facial expressions that give players an immersive gaming experience across both cinematic sequences and gameplay.
How do we meet project needs?
- Versatility – our animators are capable of promptly addressing new inquiries and leveraging a skilled team of animators proficient to meet any requirements. This versatility enables us to handle diverse gaming projects and deliver high-quality outcomes within agreed timelines.
- Creativity – the combination of artistic creativity and technical proficiency among our animators results in game animations that are not only visually impressive but also functionally robust, enhancing the immersive experience for gamers and contributing to the overall success of the game.
- Adaptability – Whether we are tasked with working on animations of different genres or utilizing new and unfamiliar tools, the team showcases a high level of adaptability. This plays a pivotal role in ensuring that the specific needs of each project are met and surpassed.
But instead of just telling you, we like to let our work do the talking. Take a look at our animation in action below:
