Here is a behind the scenes piece on Uncharted 3, we get a look at how the actor Nolan North, the voice behind the famous action hero Nathan Drake, actually becomes the character.

The PlayStation Blog has an in-depth feature, which goes into the process of motion-capturing the game’s actors, showing the Uncharted fans how much work, and equipment it actually takes to make the video game characters come to life. It takes around 86 cameras to get every movement the actor makes, which is what the game needs for the high level of detail it displays.

North said,

“This might surprise some people, but we don’t just play Drake and Sully” he continued to say “Sometimes I’m mocapping the guy whose neck I’m breaking! Sometimes we play as the bad guys…in UNCHARTED 2’s train sequence, you’ll notice that one soldier runs with a bit of a limp. That’s me, chasing me, and getting blown up by propane tanks.”
