We had a great motion capture session at the Mixamo studios yesterday. Mixamo updated their hardware and software workflow which presented us with an opportunity to update the performance capture for all the characters in the Galiwango film. This was a tight schedule but we managed to squeeze in alot of the redos.

Thanks again to the Mixamo Team (www.mixamo.com) for their great support and Partnership. A great thumbs up to the Main actor, Ross Travis, for his tireless and creative acting injection,. He took the time to study the mountain gorilla locomotion before coming to the shoot. Thanks Guys!!
Galiwango Obulamu Bw'ekisodde (Translated: The life of a mountain Gorilla) is a 3D animated film about the story of an orphaned mountain Gorilla called Galiwango. The film explores the challenges that Galiwango encounters when he is captured and sold as a baby on the black market by Kasobeza, a former ranger turned rebel, to an illegal animal trafficking ring leader called Musawo (meaning the Doctor) .
