EA16 07 Diana Arellano - The Other Face of Character Animation I Animation Hagenberg
Animated or virtual characters have belonged for a long time to the film or games industry. But what happens when one wants to use animated characters in a different field than entertainment? Specifically, where and how can we use facial animation in a way that produces a bigger impact and supports other disciplines? These questions will be answered by presenting a number of interdisciplinary projects realized at the Institute of Animation, Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg like The Muses of Poetry and SARA—Stylized Animation for Research in Autism, which have been mostly focused on real-time facial animation.
