Avatar performance capture actor and alumnus to speak

Friday, August 31, 2018 at 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Wolfe Center for the Arts, Eva Marie Saint Theatre - Room 124
Wolfe Center for the Arts, Bowling Green, OH 43403

BGSU Theatre alumnus Kevin Dorman '01 will share insights from a career that has taken many twists and turns through different aspects of performance in the ever-changing entertainment industry. Dorman, who has spent the last 15 years in Los Angeles as an actor, has primarily worked in performance capture and voiceover in film, video games and commercials. He has worked on films such as Real Steel 2011 and Resident Evil Vendetta 2018; he also has appeared in dozens of video games such as Resident Evil, Call of Duty and Spiderman. He has done voiceover work with National  Geographic, Toyota and Disney.

He has logged more days in a capture suit than anyone else in the business, starting with Beowolf in 2005, working with directors such as James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, John Favreau and Roert Zemeckis. As one of the pioneers of "perfcap" he has etched out a unique corner of the business in which an actor can work the entire length of a film playing/doubling multiple characters. Currently he is working in Los Angeles on the Avatar sequels.
