Eye candy: CG Audrey Hepburn advertises Galaxy

Thursday, February 28th, 2013 | Posted by Fernando Caire

If the Uncanny Valley frightens you, this is going to freak you out – although in a good way. Audrey Hepburn was recently resurrected by VFX studio Framestore to sell Galaxy chocolate in a one-minute UK ad.

Though her movements still come off as very mechanical, it is hard to deny that this is still a great recreation of one of my favorite actresses. Whether or not we will be seeing Hepburn, Clark Gable, or James Dean star in any more full-length features remains to be seen, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

Read more about Framestore’s VFX work, or check out the ad below.

    Now, imagine using this technology not to recreate actors, but to CREATE actors and actress! Imagine giving the movie the characters as you want, with size, build, colors, hair, you chose it, they made it.

    EltonBM, people have been doing that for eighty years. It’s called animation.
