Final Fantasy - Gray Project (1998)
Advanced CGI facial animation, first photorealistic child CGI animation
1) From creators of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001).
2) During preproduction, the script of Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within went through 50 incarnations. In one such form there was a small child named Meg, who had a much larger part in the overall story. In the final version of the film the fifth spirit was drawn from a terminally ill child. This is the only reference to Meg left in the final version of the film.
