Inspired by actors such as Jim Carrey, Wesley Snipes and Andy Serkis, Ace Ruele is known for his animated and physically demanding acting abilities.
From a young age, Ace was interested in becoming an action actor, but when he discovered motion and performance capture acting whilst working on the film, The Legend Of Tarzan, he instantly knew this was exactly what he wanted to do.
“I never knew animals, monsters and creatures were played by humans, I thought they were all CGI.” ~ Ace Ruele
Ace has now established his name as a motion and performance capture actor. He is one of the only BAME actors in the UK recognised in this field. His unorthodox creature performances have gained the respect of many who work within the VFX and CGI industry.
A majority of Ace’s work has been in computer video games, including Planets Of The Apes Vr, The Inpatient and Daymare 1988. Ace also creates performance reference videos, which are used by animators around the world for CGI characters.
In The Volume With Ace Ruele is a Youtube channel created by Ace to demonstrate different types of motion capture acting. Actors and animators can find tutorial videos; for example, on how to be a creature or monster for motion capture. It is also a channel for individuals to be able to view his latest work.
