Andy Serkis on CBS Sunday Morning Can't Post

If you missed it, the show's website has a transcript of the segment with possible video coming later (it sometimes shows up, sometimes not) and a gallery of images of Andy in movies and a little about the process of motion capture.

And they offer links to the official website for The Hobbit movies and to Andy's new studio with performance capture technology (which I wasn't aware of): The Imaginarium Studios.

Quote from the segment:
It's the performance (that Andy delivers in a motion capture role) that Andy Serkis would like to see get more respect:

"It used to annoy me that people would say, 'Oh well, you know, the voice of Gollum by Andy Serkis.' And it was like, 'Well, that's not true.' When an actor's playing a role using performance capture, they are authoring the role."

"Do you think there's going to be an Oscar category for you someday?" Mason asked.

"I don't think there should be an Oscar category for performance capture. It's acting. It's not a genre of acting, it's not a type of acting. It's acting."
