Abranimation - Motion Capture and Bento dances




Real Life Motion Capture Company Awesome Dog Limited  the creators of the Second Life leading animation brand Abranimations,  original Mocap dances and animation overrides, has a Mainstore in London City.

Abranimations has been a partner of  London City for five years, but the brand has been in-world for thirteen years and uses the very latest capture techniques, for their  bento dances; where multiple cameras track the movements of real life dancers and performers and  digitally encode them into virtual world animations.

CEO Abramelin Wolfe explained that, "Originally we lived near London and it is a very special place for both Wildcat and myself and seeing and feeling the buzz in London City, we knew we wanted to be here and that it felt right for our business.  I especially like the little touches that bring it all to life."

Talking about the latest innovations from their company he explained, "We have recently set up a brand new studio and we are working really hard with new fluid and exceptionally realistic animations, including bento finger animations, which can already be seen in our in-world stores".



Abramelin has also made a fantastic free accessory for London City visitors, a union jack style Mesh Avatar to go with some dances and mime animations.  "We made a special Brit one to give away free here".





Abranimations is located here http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/31/129/24   All animations have a test pad in the shop which you can sit on to dance and try before you buy.  What's more - in this massive stores there are many other products on offer, including club games, stunt bikes, guns, a butt animator and an hilarious fish slapper!

Abranimations has also featured on the Drax files where Abramelin explains some of the company history and demonstrates the extraordinary lengths they go to in their studio to ensure the perfect detailed dances that we all enjoy in Second Life.

The beach scene in Substation
Wow, what fantastic weather we are having this year!   Wall to wall sunshine for weeks on end!

We're coming to the very height of the summer now, and just like many of you going on your holidays, so are many of our cast and crew.

During the next few weeks, we'll do our very best to bring you the events you have come to expect from us.  Invariably there will be some changes to the line-ups, as some members of our team set off on holidays.

Real life holidays are the highest priority in the universe, so you will forgive us for some changes (he says as he hurriedly packs his bags).

Also, because England has made it through to the World Cup Semi Final, there is no Worlds End this Wednesday, but you can listen live in London City and comment on the match with all your mates.

England v Croatia

You can listen live to the match in London City and scream and yell for every goal England scores as they take Croatia to the cleaners!

Engerlaaaand, Engerlaaaand!
