Video Wednesdays: “Kara” by Quantic Dream

This video popped up on my media feeds last week, a short video created by the artists behind the Playstation 3 game Heavy Rain, as an example of what can be done with mo-cap (motion capture) and virtual characters. There’s something poignant about bringing a story about an android thinking that it’s alive and pleading for it’s life created with virtual technology. Love it.
