Ed Catmull 3D Pioneer

A friend at work shared this with everyone. I knew Ed Catmull made the first ever 3D film with a model hand and a lot of brains, but I didn't know that all these early tests of faces existed at all! Must have been amazing to see 3D go from what it was then to what it is now.

So much CG work goes un-noticed. Which if you're part of the VFX industry then that means you're doing your job! Rise of the Apes had some of the best integrated stuff I've seen in a long time. To be honest, I didn't even realize till the end of the movie that the Orangutan(not very prominent in the trailer) was CG.

Mind blown!
