When my bestie, George (an extremely rare Albino silverback) gets hangry. Hungry + angry.
Blown away by this technology. Makin' a cool movie for you guys here on set of #Rampage.
When George (and a crocodile and grey wolf) are infected they grow at a rapid rate to gigantic proportions rampaging across the country.
In this scene our Oscar winning Weta Digital (Lord of the Rings, Avatar etc) is using their ground breaking "performance capture" to bring "George" the Silverback to life. It uses over 30 special cameras to "see" the performance of my co-actor @tallie7487 allowing the digital artists to make the most realistic and badass animations possible. He's wearing a "facial capture helmet" and we can record every muscle movement and expression and emotion of George as goes on a rampage. Jason studied gorillas for months preparing for this performance capture role - facial expressions, sounds, habits and emotions. Spectacular performance.
What a learning curve for me and such a pleasure to help produce these amazing artists who come to set daily to be game changers.
More to come. Amazing technology.
