OUR RESPONSE

We are living through an unusual and unprecedented time that has made us all reevaluate the plans we had set for the year. Despite all of us being faced with many unknowns, we at Rouge Mocap are committed to safely continuing our beloved work of motion capture and ensuring that your project can continue moving forward as planned. As we venture into new shooting territory we will be offering remote shooting via teleconference with no more than 10 people on set at a time. Until the “Shelter at Home” mandate has been lifted, we will only be offering teleconferencing shoots and will be practicing stringent social distancing guidelines. Below you will find the preemptive measures we have taken to guarantee that our crew, cast, and clients will remain safe while performing the work that we all love.
