When it can be in mid air and not on a screen....that will be the next level for me. The teeth on this guy is pretty bad...I think....

They got the hard part right though, the eyes and expression I thought it was amazing.

Oh its definately the best I have seen thus far. However, I dont get it. I can just film someone and there I go.....2 min vs. 100's of hours to make it.

Not sure...

Awesome, but even more inspiring was the other video of the same. It's a wearable costume and not just an armature.

Could someone please make this available for the haunt industry?

Makes you wonder if we'll be able to use video or photographic evidence in court in 50 years, once we're able to create completely photo-realistic simulations of anything.

I have 3 or 4 of those servo driven heads that attach to a mask.. Even though cool not meant to last. The biggest servo I have seen used was in the studio of animal makers.. Still just shooting a few days... So beyond price you would have issues with durability when you add harsh motion.

Personally, I think CGI imagery in haunt videos is a bit counterproductive and that actors in make up and costumes in these kinds of videos are much more effective and believable. Next CGI level or not.

Post video is CGI.......2nd and 3rd videos are not CGI's...that was the point....

You are correct of course, but where there is a will (and a buck) there is a way. Even if the facial control was "dumbed down" by half it would still blow the current offerings away and be one of those ooh-ahhh moments for any guest.
