Facial Animation provided for BBC's Atlantis


Dimensional Imaging provide on-location facial performance capture service

Dimensional Imaging were asked to provide facial animation for several characters featured in BBC One's 'Atlantis'. Atlantis is a fantasy drama set in a world of legendary heroes and mythical creatures on the shores of the ancient and mysterious city of Atlantis.

Vine FX were responsible for the VFX, and having worked with them on past projects such as the BBC's 'Merlin', we were excited to be part of the team delivering an on-location 4D facial performance capture service with our DI4D PRO Service. Also involved were Ten24 who provided some stunning static 3D captures that were used to create the virtual characters.

There was, of course, an extra challenge on this shoot. Oscar and BAFTA winning make-up artist Mark Coulier was brought in to transform the actors into incredibly realistic fantasy creatures. This involved extensive facial prosthesis. We weren't sure how it would turn out, but we were pretty blown away by the final results!

“The high fidelity of data delivered from their 4D system and quality of facial performance capture, ensured an extremely successful end result.”
