Oh The Faux Possibilities!
Plastic surgery just isn’t good enough anymore if you want to be an in-demand actor. Image Metrics is literally changing the face of performers through 3-D imaging, and just like a great pair of fake boobs, they’re even better looking than the real thing. The demo is so lifelike, you’ll swear you’ve known the spokesmodel since summer camp. So how do they do it? Amazingly enough, there’s no need for weird wires or funky doo-dads attached to the actor’s face, Image Metrics builds its models off a computer program that scans plain old video. It picks up every subtle movement (and we’d like to pick up their adorable animators). Check out this test video cutie trying to play his hero, Einstein. [Via Gawker]
