In Search Of The Digital Actor

Increasingly, movie studios are using digital actors in movies. “The creation of a computer-generated digital person has been the Holy Grail of the digital effects industry. Digital Domain generated attention in this area as far back as 1997, when it populated the decks of the Titanic with digital passengers in its Academy Award-winning epic “Titanic.” More recently, Digital Domain and other effects houses have increasingly used digital characters for certain applications, including stunts where having an actor perform would be dangerous or simply impossible.”
