    Weta Digital

Abstract:


    Alita: Battle Angel follows the young cyborg Alita as she unearths her extraordinary past. Her palpable humanness was key to the film’s success and her character represents a new standard of photoreal digital doubles and humanoid CG character realization. Visual Effects Supervisor Nick Epstein will discuss how Weta Digital’s advances in performance capture, CG biology, and facial animation brought her story to life.
