Framestore has brought the late actress Audrey Hepburn back to the screen using the company’s highly advanced VFX techniques. The realistic CG Audrey was created for a Galaxy chocolate commercial in the UK.
First, they searched for the perfect Audrey Hepburn double who shared as many of her features and characteristics as possible. Then they carried out extensive facial scanning at their in-house Capture Lab, including a FACS (facial action coding system) session. This enabled the team to record over 70 possible muscle movements and capture high resolution textures.
Her head movements are a little creepy, but apart from that you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a slightly botoxed real thing.
