Audrey Hepburn Lives!


...Well, sort of. 

UK viewers may have seen this ad on the tv recently. I must say it stopped me in my tracks for a minute, courtesy of Daniel Kleinman who also directed the title sequence for 'Skyfall'. This kind of reconstruction is becoming more popular lately as you may have seen with the Dior ad I posted a couple of months ago, featuring a resurrected Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich. For this commercial the Framestore agency team used pioneering VFX techniques to bring Audrey Hepburn™ (yes, apparently she's a trademark), back to the screen using a double and full CG face replacement. For the fascinating details read all about it on Framestore's website here.
