Tron: Legacy – Clu CG Model

Clu CG Model

On Tron: Legacy, I was the Facial Model Lead responsible for “youthenizing” Jeff Bridges as “Clu”, Bruce Boxleitner as “Tron”; creating their hand modeled 350+ FACS based blendshapes and for creating the high res digital double heads of Quorra & Flynn.

Below are shots of the “youthenized” Jeff Bridges as “Clu”, showing a large range of his all digital, emotive abilities.

Tron: Legacy – Clu wireframe

Clu wireframe

Here’s a small sampling of Clu’s 350+ FACS based blend shapes as “wireframes” in action. Matthias Wittman, Tom St. Amand and Patrick Perez were the top shelf animators that brought Clu to life.

Tron

Having Bruce Boxleitner reprise his younger role as “Tron” was pretty exciting. Just like Clu, I “youthenized” him using Mudbox, taking the then 60 year old actor and making him look as he was in his early 30′s.

Unfortunately, he was rendered with a heavy filter to suggest “a flashback”, obscuring much of his likeness. Sigh.

Tron: Legacy – Flynn CG Model

Flynn

There was discussion that we may need a digital model of present age Jeff Bridges for when he re-intergrates with Clu during the bridge sequence. Below is the CG model prepared for that shot. Ultimately, it wasn’t used.

Tron: Legacy – Quorra CG Model

Quorra

For the scene where Quorra leaps off of the bridge while swinging from a light whip, we needed a digital double of Olivia Wilde to complete the dangerous shot. Quorra’s face would be visible for 2 – 3 frames at most, so I couldn’t spend more than a week on this model.
