Today we wandered out to see Highgate Cemetery. It's pretty high up on the hill around highgate and we found it to be one of the few places you can go for a secluded walk. Mind you it cost us 3 pounds per person to enter and we never got into the west wing where probably the more photographic tombs are. For that section you need to be part of their guided tour which is 7 pounds per person. One day we'll get around to seeing it, maybe when the trees are not bare.

Well to be honest the news had nothing to do with the face capture session I was in. We just happened to be in the mocap room when the BBC came in to take some footage of rocksteady and how Batman was nominated in the BAFTA Game awards last night. It all happened pretty franticly and we had to make sure to only show BM1 stuff but I dident really have anything prepared. So whats really happening in that shot is we're just playing a movie on the screen for Tom (Face Actor) to lip sync to. The funny thing was after we did a couple takes of this the BBC guy said "I was hoping for him to be doing some action or something" not realizing the whole point of face capturing is to capture the face... Anyway I posted the link from the BBC news report that I've captured to see what it was all about.
Congrats on BM1 getting best game at the BAFTA's!

This Saturday we went walking along Hampstead Heath Park. It's one of the biggest parks in London and it has hills! Actually I walk past this park every day to work but this is the first time I've ever walked through it. When the weather gets warmer I'm sure I'll post some more pics from here.
