Konami debuted Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain earlier this year. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in June, the publisher released a new trailer that revealed many new characters, including a sniper named Quiet.

Now, Konami is showing off how it used dozens of cameras to capture the person that plays Quiet in the upcoming stealth-action game for current- and next-gen consoles. Check it out below:

The video shows an array of cameras surrounding Dutch model Stefanie Joosten, who plays Quiet, a mute sniper who Snake will come across during his mission in Afghanistan.

Joosten does several facial expressions that the Metal Gear Solid team will use to craft her performance. The video also shows Joosten in a performance-capture suit, so the developer can capture her walk and movements.
