Today Rockstar Games takes gamers behind the scenes of their smash hit Max Payne 3, showing off the work that went into the game’s Voiceover, Mo-Cap and Facial Scanning sessions.
From New York City to São Paulo the casting, voiceover recording, body and facial scanning and performance capture of Max Payne 3 was in itself an epic-scale production and adventure, spanning across continents and with a dynamic cast of hundreds.
Seeking out local talent to bring an unprecedented level of authenticity to the game the process started with the addition of Portuguese novela star Benedita Pereira who plays the Portugal-born Fabiana Branco. While the game’s principal stars are portrayed by actors recorded and motion captured at our NY homebase (including James McCaffrey returning as the voice and face of Max Payne ), the many Brazilian supporting roles - from paramilitary soldiers to Branco office employees to favela residents and more – the Rockstar Studios team made several production trips to the heart of São Paulo for a series of intensive dedicated recording and body scanning sessions.
