This Masterclass will take place at the Imaginarium Studios in Ealing.

This is a unique opportunity for 25 masterclass members to tour the celebrated performance capture studios in Ealing.

Andy will talk about the step by step process of becoming a character - from concept to voice to posture, and he will choose a few masterclass members to get into motion capture suits. Andy will then pick a character and he will direct/impart expertise and transform those in the suits into that character.

For this exclusive opportunity, we are trialling a £10 deposit scheme. This scheme is based on the feedback we received from Masterclass members in regards to dropouts.
