Winner: Cannes Titanium Lion Award for Virtual Tupac

In 2012, my Digital Domain colleagues and I were listed as winners of the coveted Cannes Titanium Lion Award; we were awarded ¬†GOLD at the London International Awards and in 2013, took home a Grand Clio Award all for Virtual Tupac. It’s a humbling experience to stand in the shadow of industry giants.

This was a tough show; no scans, no time, no place to hide. Facing a rapid development schedule against an immovable, hard deadline, I took on the daunting task of hand modeling the likeness of Tupac Shakur and his FACS based facial shapes. I relied heavily on screen grabs from interviews, videos, fan pics as well as personal guided input by Tupac’s friends; Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

Here’s a small teaser of the final work.
