The “Mockey database”, was recorded during the Numediart workshop of March 2010 and aims to study the “expressivity” of walk. In this database, only one subject was recorded, a professional actor who could interpret the emotions we wanted to record in the walk sequences. For the recording session, the actor wore the motion capture suit and walked back and forth on a scene, performing various walk styles. Before each capture sequence, he was given instructions about the “style” of walk that he had to act. The different acted styles were the following: proud, decided, sad, cat-walk, drunk, cool, afraid, tiptoeing, heavy, in a hurry, manly. These eleven styles were arbitrarily chosen as they all have a recognizable influence on walk. Our “style” component consists thus in exaggerated variations that can be far from plain walk. In this database, motion was recorded at a frame rate of 30 fps. Motion files are stored in biovision bvh file format.
