Jordan Mechner, original creator of the calssic PC and Amiga game Prince of Persia has released his reference video that he used for motion capture of the prince. Basically he video tapes his little brother doing the moves and then rotoscoped the tapes into real game animation. To put it bluntly, this is pretty fricking awesome.
