Facial Performance

The challenge on this project was to bring Albert Einstein back to life, but in a bath! The Mill shot live action with actor John Guerrasio in the bath and looked to DI4D to assist in creating a digital version of Einstein based on John’s performance. Using the DI4D PRO system on location at The Mill’s London office, we captured and tracked John’s facial performance and a number of key shapes. The Mill then used the shapes to build an Einstein rig, and retargeted John’s performance to the rig.
