Behind the scenes photos


1) Commercial made for Playstation by Chris Cunningham, that demonstrate facial motion capture.

2) Chris Cunningham spent two days with The Mill’s Flame operator, Barnsley, designing a look for Fi-Fi (girl on the video). They pulled her eyes apart and turned them inwards, shrunk her nose, squashed her mouth and stretched her body out like a bean-pole. Afterwards Barnsley and effects artist Chris Knight worked over a week to finish the entire 40-second commercial.

3) First photorealistic face deformation was in David Byrne - She's Mad (1992).
