Andy Serkis is opening a mo-cap studio for games and film

I'm pretty sure that Andy Serkis has done for motion capturing what Citizen Kane did for deep focus. There's no doubt that his performance as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings films cemented motion capture as a viable option for an important ...
