About this event
Known for photorealistic CG character creation, Digital Domain began one of their more complicated character projects when working on Marvel’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Tasked with making She-Hulk a dynamic character with a complete wardrobe and a variety of hairstyles, Digital Domain produced over 967 shots that featured 43 minutes of She-Hulk for the first season of the show.
Join the Digital Domain team to learn about their process for creating the full CG She-Hulk. During the presentation, Digital Domain will break down how they were able to create dewy, contour make-up, a range of facial expressions, and a new shapewear and muscle system with the help of Nuke. The team will also discuss how they used their new in-house deepfake system called Charlatan for facial transformations and how they brought K.E.V.I.N. to life.
