Most famous examples of motion capture to date involve human-like characters. Andy Serkis, the human behind Gollum, King Kong, and Caesar the ape is perhaps the performer most well-known for motion capture technology roles. He has developed a reputation as a master of the form bringing all those nonhuman (but definitely bipedal) beings to life on screen. In the first _Lord of the Rings _film, he simply stood in for Gollum on set, and animators used software to paint the decayed Hobbit over his body, mimicking his actions. By for the second and third films, Serkis wore a suit much like Cumberbatch's. Reflective beacons at key points on the fabric bounced light at the cameras, allowing animators to match Serkis's motions to key points on a digital model of Tolkein's monster.
