Rocksteady Studios create some of the world’s biggest video games including the official Batman game, Arkham Knight. The company's animation team approached City Academy looking for a series of enhanced acting classes that would equip the team with new skills. The objective of the programme was to improve the performance of non-actor animators.
City Academy’s professional movement and physical theatre practitioner designed an extended programme. We built the programme to focus on tools for building character, finding authentic movement, emphasizing conflict in the body, exploring economy of movement.
“The team fully embraced your method of working and once the hands on activities started the group became more and more comfortable, with each other and the tutor. Everyone had positive things to say and even the non-actors said they enjoyed it and were looking forward to the next one!” Animation Director, Rocksteady
