Right, can Andy Serkis get some kind of Oscar award soon please? Because it’s getting a bit ridiculous now – this video by IGN has the man of many faces and the Godfather of motion capture demonstrate the capabilities modern video games have to create realistic faces using the Unreal Engine. The video is simply of Serkis reciting a monologue (we’ve watched this video about 5 times and still have no idea what he’s talking about but Christ is it menacing) as his expressions and speech are matched onto an alien/monster face alongside him. The results are spectacular, from the mouth movements to even the expressions in his eyes, and serve as a great reminder of how far we have come technology wise since Gollum chased that fish down a stream.
