Behind The Scenes of P-Cap As a Whole

Let’s be honest. You probably know what it takes to get in the industry as a performer. If you don’t, well the podcast will educate you a bit on that. The real question is, “Are you familiar with Performance Capture as whole?” This is important. Especially as this becomes more of a demand and the competition rises. How important is it to understand the functions of a director, technician, casting director, make up artist and more in the field of performance capture? Just putting on the suit is not enough. Know the industry inside out. Know your departments and everyone's language in the field. Because when you do, the chances of working in PCap will be much greater. That’s the way I see it. Thanks Victoria for your continuous curiosity, wonderful voice, and amazing people you bring to this show. - Sway Molina
