For the first time in Eastern Canada, Vaughan International Film Festival (VFF) is thrilled to announce a new and innovative workshop presented by VAPZ on Saturday, November 17th, with none other than Terry Notary. One of the most notable motion capture experts in the world, whose talents have contributed to blockbuster franchises such as The Avengers Infinity War, rebelling as Teen Groot, The Planet of the Apes, hanging as Rocket, and wrestling titans as King Kong in Kong: Skull Island. Terry’s most recent job as movement coach included Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Rampage and Disney’s highly anticipated remake of The Lion King.
Calling on all actors, stunt performers, dancers, directors, and anybody interested in the intricacies of the film industry’s most coveted modern acumen; we invite those looking to hone their craft and truly embrace the future of filmmaking.
The 3 hour workshop located in Vaughan, will include detailed lessons in stunt choreography and performance movement, with a bonus Q&A to follow. Learning from one of Hollywood’s masters, Terry’s knowledge in performance movement will allow you to reform, and often times set aside, basic humans’ habits to truly encapsulate the physicality of another foreign body. This intimate and interactive event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get insider information on the next generation of performance capture talent.
