The National Film and Television school, located just twenty-minutes outside of London in Beaconsfield has a long history of creating great cinema,TV and recently the next great game-makers. The NFTS campus was originally a famous British movie studio where the first British talkie was filmed, England’s war propaganda films were made and in 1971 became the home of the National Film School. The school’s accolades include the birthplace of “Wallace and Gromit” animation, 2012 Oscar nominated short, “Head Over Heels”, current TV series “Peppa Pig” and was named by Hollywood Reporter as the #1 International Film School in 2014.
The @NFTS_games program hosted Reallusion’s John Martin for a two-day workshop on real-time animation with iClone, Unity3D and Noitom Mocap. The program’s first-year graduate students participated in learning techniques to use iClone for 3D character creation and animation for their Unity3D games projects. Students also joined a live motion capture training to learn about using Noitom’s Perception Neuron motion capture suit with iClone to create mocap on-the-fly for game character animation.
Alumni from the NFTS game development program have successfully utilized iClone to receive honors like www4pmgame.com Winner of People’s Choice Award at Develop Conference 2014; Steam Greenlight and industry-backed funding for Pixel Ripped, a VR game which is storming the Oculus Rift https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyGjZe24R78.
