Bringing Hollywood's Digital Humans To Life

11 May 2020

The actors you see on computer screens, TV sets, and in movies themselves are changing and not just because they're getting older.

In this week's VICE episode, the team explore the frontier of the 3D face and body scanning technology used to create digital doubles for films, video games, and holograms.

We meet some of the scanned humans, their avatars, and get to understand the challenges the Institute For Creative Technologies has had to overcome in their quest to create a photo-realistic virtual person, including the conquering of the Uncanny Valley.
