RIP Gordon Hunt, Uncharted's Motion Capture Director

Gordon Hunt, director and father of actress Helen Hunt, has died at the age of 87, THR reports. In recent years, he’d been doing a lot of very important video game work on series like Uncharted.

Hunt, who oversaw voice work on The Smurfs, The Jetsons and Scooby-Doo at Hanna-Barbera before going on to direct episodes of TV’s Mad About You, transitioned into video games around the turn of the millennium, perhaps most notably serving as the director of motion-capture and voice acting in the first three Uncharted games, while also helping out on The Last Of Us and Uncharted’s Vita outing.

Hunt, who had been battling Parkinson’s Disease, is survived by his wife and three children.
