Beyond Two Souls: A look into motion capture

Beyond Two Souls is a AAA title video game made by Quantic Dream for the Playstation 3 release October 8th, 2013. The player plays the part of Jodie, played and motion-captured by Ellen Page, a girl who has an unexplained link to a paranormal entity. The facial capture and reproduction in 3d staggered me when I first played and had me in awe.

This video demonstrates the sheer amount of complexity in shooting an otherwise difficult scene. The nature of narrative, player-driven games is that of multiple story choice. It also demonstrates just how alien-like motion capture is.
