Head Mounted Camera Rig Upgrade ~ Facial Motion Capture | Solomon W. Jagwe | 12,137 views

So I have been tinkering with this home made head mounted camera rig, that I have been using to capture the Facial Performance for the Characters both in the Galiwango film (http://www.galiwango.com/) and the Nkoza and Nankya TV series (http://www.nkozaandnankya.com/episode-1-nkoza-nankya )

I wasn’t too happy with the durability and ease of use of the first build (you can see that here: http://www.galiwango.com/2012/11/05/custom-head-mounted-camera-rig-for-facial-performance-capture/), so I made some adjustments. I went to the Dollar store and purchased 4 lights, each $1 Dollar, I also visited Staples and purchase a $24 dollar Smart Phone Car holder (total expenditure $28 Dollars.)

    wow, thanks i have made my own but stuck a little, is it a markerless system? if not what did u use as markers?

    • Hi Isaac, yes it is a markerless system, but it can also help you capture stable video of your face with markers. The resulting video can then be used on facial performance analyzing software like Faceplus, and FacewareTechs Analyzer.

  2. This to me looks like an eminent innovation, with astounding uniqueness, why can’t we attempt a IP filing?
