Every good film relies on well-written characters to convey the essence of the story. But in an animated feature, good writing doesn’t guarantee success. Everything depends on character animation. And character animation used to cost a lot of money.

This was the problem I faced when planning animated film noir and video game The Chest with my production company Rendered Frames (watch the trailer below). 10 or 15 years ago, only the bigger studios could produce good-quality animation; it was a challenge for indie animators to find the budget and the staff they needed.

But this has changed in the past few years. More and more companies have realised the opportunities presented by solo artists and small studios, and the new generation of animation software they have created has opened up new horizons for ambitious freelance teams.

befores & afters: The Latest in Digital Character Control from Reallusion

Visual effects and Animation journalist Ian Failes was fascinated at SIGGRAPH by Reallusion’s iClone Unreal Live Link and Headshot A.I.

“Reallusion’s iClone is known for being able to drive facial animation of CG characters without using tracking markers. I tried this out at SIGGRAPH 2019, and it was fascinating to watch it all happen in real-time.”
