It’s intriguing to see how far CG animation has come. A company called Image Metrics is doing very realistic facial animations, without motion capture. They claim to have an algorithm that analyzes normal video and generates the animation.

I wonder how much human effort went into creating this. There’s a sizable list of credits at the end.
