Body Language in Games
Lessons from Animation and Acting
Meeting Room 1September 7, 5pm – 7pm
Leisha-Marie Riddel @LeishaRiddel
Emotions add deeper context to all kinds of video games that feature characters, but can be difficult to communicate visually. Learn how to exploit body language cues, apply facial expression breakdowns using FACS (Facial Action Coding System) and use them as shorthand in your game. Participants will learn body language principles from the animation and acting worlds, and explore translating and applying this knowledge to video games.
This event is part of Damage Camp workshop day, happening on Friday, September 7.
