The future of facial enhancement in film will be digital, and fairly creepy…at least according to this video by Nobumichi Asai, which demonstrates the latest in digital makeup technology called Omote.
Omote combines face tracking technology, motion capture concentrated on facial points rather than the whole body, with a digital image projection that changes and moves along with the face in real time.
It's fascinating to watch the facial projection change along with the soundtrack, and the video really shows the potential applications for this kind of digital facial enhancement in film, but how will this new technology affect those famous Hollywood faces? Only time will tell...
