With 62 Nominations in different Contests, 3 Oscars, 4 Visual Effects Society Awards (VES), and 12 Wins more, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has been the movie that surprised the Visual Effects World this year.
Basically, it is about the passage of time, time as it moves forward, and time as it ages one man backwards. For 52 minutes of the movie, over 325 shots, Benjamin Button is a 100 computer generated head on a live actor’s body, which is a hit in this business field.
Four Visual Effects facilities, commanded by Digital Domain, a Steven Spielberg company, will show you in this article, the making of this movie through these videos. We will publish a overview about the revolutionary technology Contour™ by Mova® focused on the Facial Motion Capture in the next news.
