Animated mouth on real baby... Like baby Bob on Quizno commercials... Help?
on Jun 5, 2006 at 4:28:44 am

I have a customer who is asking what it takes to do the real baby talking like the baby named Bob on the old Quizno's commercials. I only know enough to know I don't want to do it, but I have to do them a favor and ask the pros anyway.

So, what does it take? What special efforts need to be taken when shooting the practical photography part? How expensive can it get for about 30 seconds to 1 minute with various lens lengths?

Keep in mind, I only need to inform and educate them. I don't need to know every single detail. When it comes down to it, I'll shoot it, but I'll hire someone else to track and animate the mouth.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Gary

Ok there are several free tutorials out there.
I seem to remember that Rick Jackson [ http://www.eaglequest.com/~rich/ ]
did one in the now discontinued 3D Artist Magazine. I beleive he used lightwave
but they may still have the article posted on http://www.3dartist.com/
There are several how-to books that include tutorials.
Are you looking for some free advice or a class or book?

Sounds like this would be better for live action composited rather than 3d. 3d mouths/faces always look fake especially when tracked onto something as twitchy as a baby. You can have an actor secure his head and use a locked down camera to shoot a nice clean locked down mouth to track and composite over your live baby talent.

It can be done in 3d but to look convincing would be time consuming, they did turn to a 3d model to bring marlon brando back fromt he dead in the new superman film, but Im sure if he was alive and available for a quick day shoot they could have avoided making a 3d version of him.
