Step into VR and virtual production

Location: Eldon Building

Our trailblazing Motion Capture Studio uses a variety of motion capture systems to deliver a professional experience to our students, as well as filmmakers and commercial clients from outside the University.

The studio is used by students in the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries and has everything needed for virtual production and virtual reality (VR) in visual effects (VFX), gaming, and the arts.

A key role of our studio is providing industry-relevant experience to our students during their studies—and our alumni have worked globally in the motion capture industry for companies such as Rockstar Games, Vicon, Imaginarium Studios, and Weta Digital.
