Resident Evil: Village – Mocap And Previz

Resident Evil: Village shipped with several animation-related behind-the-scenes videos as bonus extras. They are shared below:

Mocap Sessions

Motion capture sessions, shot at the Sony Santa Monica stage. Scaling the doorway/set down to later scale up Lady Dimitrescu to match in game is a common technique for larger-than-life characters.

They actually gave the actors hats to match the characters – perhaps even captured the hat motion for the correct bounce (Dimitrescu’s appears to be markered up), though more likely to ensure they didn’t put their hands through them.

Live Action Previz

First-person live action previz of key scenes.


Storyboards from the folktale-like opening cinematic.
