Los Angeles-based motion capture studio VICON House of Moves has announced that it was tapped to capture performances for full-body motions for Harmonix's PlayStation 2 rhythm game Guitar Hero II, just released by publisher RedOctane and Activision. House of Moves captured male and female performers during the two-day shoot for Harmonix, recording full-body performances in a variety of guitar styles as well as props, including two lead guitars, one bass guitar and a drum kit complete with sticks. Guitar Hero II features songs made famous by such renowned artists as Mötley Crüe, Black Sabbath, Cheap Trick, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, the Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, and Guns N' Roses. The game offers four levels of difficulty and 11 characters, three of them new, each with a distinctive look and playing style. "We've done several motion capture sessions at House of Moves and always get fantastic results," said Ryan Lesser, Art Director, Harmonix. "In addition to having state of the art technology, the company is incredibly hospitable and goes out of its way to take care of anyone who comes to the facility, whether it be a large or small production."
