Abstract:


    Industrial Light & Magic was given the task of bringing the title character to life in various stages of reincarnation, from walking skeleton to full human form and all the steps along the way. The key challenge required digital recreation of an actor, inside and out, that had the look and performance of real human bone, tissue, skin, and body mechanics.
