A list of films utilising Performance-Capture since the Millennium.

Andy Serkis’ Gollum is a distinctly renown cultural icon, not least for the already recognised genius behind his inception by Tolkien but for the performance that Serkis gave to bring the character to life using Motion Capture Performance.

But it was a turning point in the early development of Motion Capture.
