VOTD: “The Irishman” De-Aging Featurette

Votd The Irishman De Aging Featurette

Netflix has just released a thirteen minute featurette about Industrial Light & Magic’s digital de-aging work on Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman”.

The fascinating clip offers a ton of comparisons of original plate shots of the actors taken on set with the final renders of the film and showcases the amount of work done on the final shots to get the effect working right.

ILM’s FX wiz Pablo Helman showcases the challenges the studio faced in delivering the technique, especially in the way the actors didn’t have distracting markers on their face whilst filming.

Instead a new software called Flux, a special multi-camera set-up and footage of the actors in older movies was all combined to deliver the mostly impressive results.
