Final Fantasy, the classic video game series (one I never had the patience for myself) is coming to the big screen. Completely computer animated, it makes Toy Story look like a flip-book animation, and Dinosaur like, uh, never mind.
These “photos” of the characters are some of the most amazing computer generated images I have ever seen. If you have QuickTime and some time to waste, watch the trailer to see them in action.
I will be at the theatre, vaguely embarrassed, on opening night.
We aren’t far from losing a clear distinction between real actors and virtual actors. While I can’t see anything inherently wrong with that, this ‘photo’ of the lead character from Final Fantasy gives me the willies.
