    How Benjamin Button got his face

    Post by Ulfaro on Tue Feb 24, 2009 1:34 am

    For anyone else that has any interest in CGI/VFX, you'll love this video.....props to the guys at DD...

    For 52 minutes of the movie, over 325 shots, Benjamin Button is a 100% computer-generated head on a live actor's body.

    Computer generated? Really? I usually catch that stuff.

    I'll definitely watch it when I get home from boring classes. lol

    didn't realize BB was an animation movie...thought it was live action?

    On the subject of CGI etc, we saw Coraline this weekend. Creepy. Good animation yes, but creepy!

    Actually, if anyone watched the Academy Awards red carpet interviews before the actual shows..One of the red carpet hosts talked to the director about the movie and he said they didn't even have the new technology they used at the very begining of shooting the movie. I can't remember the specifics of the types of programs but i'm sure Ulf knows what he was talking about.
    I don't know why that stuck in my head, since i've never seen the movie..But I thought it was pretty interesting.

    BB is live action but it has A LOT of CGI....Unfortunately, I have yet to see the movie though. I will probably see Coraline before I see BB.

    Seen it - it's OK. I haven't seen Coraline but it reminds me of the type of movie that would give you nightmares as a young kid.

    I did see Slumdog Millionaire though. I have no idea what people see in that movie. If you want to see a movie that's 100 times better, see Salaam Bombay. It only won was nominated for a single Oscar though since it's not in English (foreign film discrimination!).

    I agree with you on Slumdog Millionaire. What the hell did people see in that movie? It was good, I enjoyed it but film of the year? No.
