Four actors on set for new Metal Gear Solid V motion capture session

Earlier this week, motion capture sessions for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain continued. Kojima posted some photos and comments showing a session involving four actors and a dummy.


“Having Motion Capture shooting all day today.”


“It requires stamina, but shooting is always fun.”


“Had Motion Capture shooting with 4 actors.”


“Plus 1 actor.”


“Finished today’s Mo-cap shooting.”

“Although I perfectly prepare for the mo-cap, I love the way of doing impromptu at shooting. Things you can’t predict would happen.”

So, who wants to take a guess what this scene is about?

    I’m thinking the guy in that first picture is Erik Brown, the guy credited for the motion capture for Big Boss.

    It’s mildly unsettling that they’re still doing mo-cap for this. I’m hoping it’ll make its suspected early 2015 release.

    It could be just enemy soliders in a cutscene or during some gameplay. Maybe even some MGO motion capture.

      Dear kojima please do not allow reflex mode to be put in mgo3. Thank you

    This is the scene from Ground Zeroes were Snake is talking to Huey.

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Yeah, why did he post this mocap scene now?

      Also, could it be possible that in the photo where they look at the screen was mocaped the same day as the Huey codec/chopper scene?

    Oh no! News like this makes me so sad! I see the dev on TPP is so raw until now! No new place, just afghan! And the actors stil doing mocap! There´s no TPP untill 2016!

      I still wouldn’t think this will be 2016 TPP is a huge game so maybe they are doing motion capture for side missions I mean in the e3 trailer we saw small parts of many different cutscenes so the most important bits are surely done and now they could be finishing up side stuff hopefully. It does make our hopes for an early 2015 release in doubt but i think we will be getting the game in 2015 for sure hopefully

    im assuming the dummy is kaz since theres an x on both the arm and leg that hes missing.

    I’m really intrigued at the fact that Kojima was doing Voice Over recordings when the last Kojima Station aired and they have Stefanie Joosten in the recording studio. I thought Trolljima said Quiet was not going to talk, or is she recording grunts and moans….. Come to think of it…..I ain’t even mad Kojima. ;P

      Nice pic!!

      Why is Sugita wearing Kaz’s glasses in a room?

      Well that’s just badass XD

      Chico is Quiet. 🙁

  • Altaim

    still doing mocap? :’I…

      Yea. There taking there sweet old time with this one. Thats the thing about metal gear games. It takes them 5 years to make one but thats only because there so awsomely detailed with amazeing depth in every aspect. And when a metal gear game finally does come out it blows every other game thats out at the time out of the water.

  • PrinceHeir

    Awesome work!

    I would have loved Kiefer Sutherland to do the mo-cap for snake’s body movements. There’s something really great about his body language in films and the way he chokeholds someone on 24 is just majestic to watch. But then again he can pull off a film with just his voice (phone booth)
