Andy Serkis as Gollum

Performance Capture

With the animators and technicians of Weta in New Zealand, Andy has advanced the art of "performance capture," where an actor's movements and expressions are electronically tracked and translated into computer generated imagery (CGI) to bring a film character to life. 

So far he has provided the acting for CGI characters Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, Kong in King Kong, Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the King in Heavenly Sword.  Upcoming releases include Tintin and The Hobbit.

Andy has founded The Imaginarium Studios in London to foster performance capture in UK.
