Yellow Brick Road
In episode #13 we meet three experts hellbent on creating the best digital faces in the world: Jonas Törnqvist, Nils Lerin and Sigtor Kildal from the 3D Scan/Face Animation department at Goodbye Kansas in Uppsala. We talk about Grand Moff Tarkin in “Rogue One”, Björn Borg in “Borg vs McEnroe” and how to scan people with a Vectorgrammetry 3D Scanner. How do you create a digital human face that looks totally convincing – and why is it so hard?
