Guest Author : Facial Animation - Laika's "ParaNorman"

In Laika's Stop-Motion Feature "ParaNorman" thousands of 3D printed faces were use in the process known as replacement animation. In order for this to work, they animate all of the speech in Autodesk Maya first using 3D characters to the exact specifications as their real puppets, then print the faces out and swap them around on the puppet for each frame. I mention this because the computer segment is one of the many things you'll learn on the course.
