Post facility Molinare has teamed-up with motion capture specialist Centroid to launch Centroid@Molinare, a brand new, full-performance capture studio in the heart of Central London.
The new venture brings together expertise from Molinare, one of the UK’s leading post production suppliers for drama, film and documentaries, with Centroid, a well-known innovator in the field of performance motion capture, character animation and VFX services for game development, film and television production. The company has worked on productions, including Wonder Woman 1984, Game Of Thrones, Mary Poppins Returns and Dunkirk. Centroid also has studios located in London, Belgrade and Mumbai.
Molinare has built other service avenues delving into Interactive Audio by introducing games as part offering and creating a Casting division specialising in casting roles for scanning VO and performance capture headed by Molinare’s creative director, Glen Gathard, head of audio facilities James Doyle, and director of casting Sarah Lynch.
Molinare MD Nigel Bennett and Phil Stilgoe CEO of Centroid successfully collaborated on productions together whilst working previously at Pinewood Studios.
Bennett, commented, “I am very happy to reignite a working relationship with Phil and his brilliant team at Centroid. They are the UK’s leading motion and performance capture provider and a major player on the international stage. Combining their expertise and our own in-house capabilities, led by our creative director, Glen Gathard, will be a potent blend and add creative depth to Molinare’s media services offer.”
Darren Woolfson director of technology/visual services at Molinare added, “Centroid are experts in their field and leaders in the use of performance motion capture technology. Molinare and Centroid will now be able to work together in developing technology to support the entire performance-capture to post-production lifecycle.”

Over the last decade we have partnered on many great projects which have laid the foundations on which we will continue to build. We offer world class story telling services not only at our fantastic, huge studio in Uxbridge but also right in the beating heart of Soho at Molinare’s vibrant creative hub.”
