Athomas Goldberg

Founder // Shocap Entertainment

(Jill Barber: Live At The Palomar, LiViCi with The 7 Fingers, First Contact (for Oculus VR), Gunheart (for Drifter VR))

After several years at EA, followed by stints at Relic Entertainment and Microsoft Studios (now The Coalition) under his belt, Athomas went on to form Lifelike & Believable Animation Design in 2014 to broaden the scope of his work beyond games to VR, AR and other emerging applications for real-time interactive animation. Over the past 6 years, Lifelike’s clients have included top drawer brands the likes of Oculus VR, Epic Games, Electronic Arts, Walt Disney Imagineering and more.

As early as 2018, the commercial potential for live performances featuring real-time technologies was becoming increasingly apparent, so Athomas and Shocap co-founder, Brett Ineson, began discussing the possibility of producing larger-scale productions for international audiences. Having worked with circus performers on earlier projects, Athomas knew that the highly dynamic and complex movement of circus performers presented some really compelling challenges and opportunities for storytelling using real-time motion capture and rendering.

After securing an Epic Games MegaGrant in the fall of 2019 in support of a collaboration with internationally-renowned circus arts collective, The 7 Fingers, Athomas and Brett founded Shocap Entertainment in April of 2020. Over the past several months, Shocap, in partnership with Lifelike and Animatrik Film Design, has been producing live-streamed virtual events, including October's Project: LiViCi circus performance, and November's Live from the Palomar with Canadian Jazz legend, Jill Barber.
