Avatars Have Emotions Too! The Art and Science of Believable Facial Animation – 2nd November 2010

What makes for an authentic facial expression? While there has been a great deal of scientific research examining the psychology of expressions, there has not been much research into the appearance of traditionally animated characters.

Join Robin Sloan of Abertay University on Tuesday 2nd of November at 6pm in The McManus Cafe where he will discuss the process of animating facial expressions, and will demonstrate what studio based practice-research can reveal about the believeability of animated expressions.

Doors open at 5.30pm and beers, wine and food are all served in The McManus Cafe, see here for a full menu. This is a FREE event, but there is limited seating available for 60 people so please do arrive early to avoid disappointment.
