Voice acting, mocap, and video games ...

The April issue of Game Informer Magazine has a feature story on the upcoming game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, for the Sony PlayStation 3.

There's a sidebar in the article of interest to actors. It's brief, but shows a pretty cool mapping of the motion capture (mocap), voice over, and animation pieces coming together, using snapshots from actors Nolan North and Emily Rose, and screenshots from the game.

Cool stuff. Uncharted could become a console seller for Naughty Dog (those folks have an awesome track record).
