SIGGRAPH Real-Time Live Demonstration Video Released As Ninja Theory Launches Senua Studio

By Daniel Kayser

Those interested in the future of real-time cinematography have likely heard about the recent award-winning demonstration put on by Epic Games, Ninja Theory, Cubic Motion and 3Lateral during Real-Time Live at SIGGRAPH 2016, and now the full presentation can be watched as it was presented live via the video below.

As seen here, the teams introduced the concept of real-time cinematography, whereby a complex scene was performed, captured, edited and rendered live onstage in minutes – a process that would normally take months. 

Having won the SIGGRAPH’s prestigious Best Real-Time Graphics and Interactivity award for their expert use of Unreal Engine 4, Ninja Theory have launched Senua Studio, a new division dedicated to offering solutions for live capturing and rendering of realistic digital characters in incredible virtual worlds.

“We have demonstrated working solutions today, and want to push forward the future of real-time entertainment, be it live performances of digital characters for stage or broadcast, shooting fully-rendered CG scenes in real time for previs, or interacting with believable characters in VR,” said Tameem Antoniades, co-founder and chief creative director of Ninja Theory.

Companies working with Senua Studio can rely on an entire technical pipeline – including the creation of realistic digital characters and virtual sets. Utilizing its knowledge of and experience with Unreal Engine, the team makes innovative projects accessible to all, without the need for internal expertise in cutting-edge animation technologies.

Nina Kristensen, co-founder and CEO of Ninja Theory added, “With Senua Studio we are offering our considerable technological, artistic and production expertise to visionary partners excited about the impact real-time technology could have for their business”.
