PC Gamer speak to Far Cry 3's narrative director, Jason Vandenberghe about how Ubisoft captured the performance of Vaas, the sadistic maniac that starred in the Far Cry 3 E3 2011 demo. Mo-cap technology was used to capture body and facial performances simultaneously, allowing the directors to " play it as a movie."
However, Vandenberghe says that technology alone is not enough. “There are techniques in acting and performance that evoke great performances," he says, "and there are techniques in acting and performance that evoke good performances. The industry has gotten really good at getting good performances, almost no-one can get great ones.”
