    Orville Redenbacher



    Faced with the daunting task of recreating a well-known American icon, Digital Domain pioneered a complete CG head replacement in bring-ing Orville Redenbacher back to life for this spot. Using a combination of motion capture, live-action photography, texture-mapping techniques, and cutting-edge animation software, the result is a first in television history and a look into the future of the industry.
