India captures facility for Mobility's VFX


Motion-capture facility Mobility Art Studios has opened in Hyderabad, India.

The company aims to service a local and international base of customers producing content for film, television, commercials and games. It has two shooting stages, equipped with Vicon MX-F40 motion-capture cameras.

The company offers motion capture with cleanup, and plans to add a cleanup-only unit, as well as an online library of performances.

India has become a popular location for VFX and animation work. Sony Pictures Imageworks and Rhythm & Hues maintain facilities there. Technicolor Content Services has a majority stake in Bangalore-based Paprikaas Animation Studios.

"The boom in India hasn't hurt us. There are talented artists and technicians in India," Mobility Art executive director Hans Van der Sluys said.
