Professional golfers and video game designers gathered at UCF’s Center for Emerging Media to shoot motion-capture footage for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, produced by Electronic Arts.
The Center for Emerging Media, located in downtown Orlando, features one of the largest motion-capture studios on the East Coast, an adjacent sound stage, production offices and editing suites.
Collectively known as Studio 500 because of the building’s 500 W. Livingston St. location, the facilities have attracted a steady stream of entertainment companies from around the continent in and have hosted numerous UCF student film shoots.
For the new EA game, pro golfers Ian Poulter and Edoardo Molinari donned spandex suits fixed with reflective markers that captured the intensity and styles of their swings.
The process was filmed by Golfweek.
