Although Chappie’s final performance was fully keyframed throughout Neill Blomkamp’s movie, motion capture was still required for reference and other purposes.

Animatrik was on hand to deliver what was needed, going as far as to fly in a lightweight mo-cap system to Mississippi, for specific sequences for the film.

The Animatrik team was able to setup and teardown the system in just one day, enabling the production to collect the performance capture needed of Chappie, portrayed by Sharlto Copley.
