This new commercial by Bent Image Lab for Lux soap is a stop motion beauty, but there is another element of quality to it that I can’t really put my finger on. Mostly in the facial expressions, which leave me wondering how much of this is actually stop motion versus cg. If anyone has more info on how this was executed , I’d love to know. Great direction too. Notice the ‘acting’ of the main character when she first finds the soap and what it, umm, ‘does’ to her… haha. I was pretty impressed by the quality of it.
*edit* it seems that the face of the girl was actually shot live action, manipulated, and then tracked onto the face of the stop motion character. Pretty awesome. Thanks for the tip Dek
