Abstract:


    Since the early days of computer graphics, researchers and artists have been fascinated by the possibility that they could create a credible digital simulation of the human face. In the “Experience Music Project,” a group of artists and technicians from Digital Domain combined science and art to recreate James Brown as a dancing, singing, funk phenomenon. This panel presented a look behind the process of integrating cutting-edge research, practical production, and traditional art and animation to set new technical standards and provide a unique, incredible entertainment experience.
