Documentary and short animation film

The first part of the movie explains the manner of making virtual reality animated characters: using special optical cameras they can track the movement of reflective markers placed on the face of a live subject then compile a library of facial expressions. Similarly by tracking full body motion of the subject they can create more realistic computer images of humans and animals. This first part of the movie gets an excellent four star rating.

However the second part gets a zero star rating because it’s all about boxing (which is one of my favourite disinterests)coupled with a sound level that is far too loud. And the movie itself is very repetitive. From a technical point-of-view it’s outstanding, but the same can’t be said for the rest of it.
