Will Actors Finally Be Replaced by Animators?

By September 28, 2014Blog

A digital animator in Australia recently released his video of a fully animated, near-photo realistic human face.  The video attracted 24,000 views on YouTube since he posted it a couple of days ago. It has long been speculated that professional actors can be replaced by computer generated animation.  How long before actors in live-action movies are fully animated?  What possibilities does this create for Hollywood star power?  Will actors of yesterday be regenerated tomorrow? James Dean in a rom-com?  Elvis in an action movie?

Any other impressive examples of animated human faces to share in the comments below?
