Our Founder was the Manager of the Facial Motion Capture Department for multiple blockbuster movies, such as Avatar, Tin Tin and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, to name a few... So naturally, one of our biggest strengths is in facial motion capture and animation. We can capture uniquely subtle movements, as well as highly dynamic expressions - from a simple blink to the complexity of emotive lip synchronization.

Our facial mocap services include the use of wireless Head-Mounted Cameras (or HMC) which can be used in conjunction with our Optical Body Motion Capture system, enabling us to capture both the body and facial data simultaneously. This system ensures that your actors full performance is accurately captured in a single moment.

Do you have a 3D concept which includes the immediate capture of a live facial performance, to be instantly applied in real-time onto a 3D model?  Mimic works with the best tools and software currently available in the production of real-time facial animation. We can guide you through the development process and facilitate your live event. Whether needed for holograms,  digital communication or live projections, we are here to help.


Each face is different, hence every project should be too. At Mimic, we work only with the world’s best facial analysis algorithms, and, as we are not afraid to be inventive, we are constantly adapting and reworking our tools to ensure we animate our facial performances with accuracy and realism.

Our facial animation services also include facial mocap "clean-up" - essentially taking the captured performance and ensuring that every unique element is retained. This can include organic and beautiful details, such as a deep breath through the nostrils, a nervous swallow, or the rolling of eyes underneath closed eye-lids. We believe it is these subtle details that truly give life to you character, and our skilled animators are constantly seeking to honour these organic and real moments in your actors performance.



We're based in Berlin, but have the resources to mocap anywhere!
