            This paper focuses on a set of motion capture processes that were choreographed and performed by Eugenia S. Kim under the direction of Kim Vincs. The overall process includes a brief overview of the Centre for Transformative Media Technology’s general approach to motion capture recording and a benchmark testing session run by John McCormick which served as a seed for the project. A major finding of the process was the importance of artistic and technical coaching for motion capture performers in helping to develop a personal movement style.
