METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN

CLIENT: Kojima Productions/Konami
PROJECT: In-Engine Cinematics

In collaboration with voice over recording studio Formosa Interactive and director Kris Zimmerman Salter, Kojima asked Frame Machine to produce the extensive series of facial performance capture sessions for the groundbreaking MGSV cutscenes, including shoots on location in Canada to accommodate their lead Snake actor, Kiefer Sutherland. Following the physical capture sessions, Frame Machine carefully processed the facial data and edited the animation as necessary to correct for a performance or to enhance the intended dramatic beats.  The result was multiple hours of facial performance content that contributed to Kojima’s distinct cinematic experience.
