Free Automated Lipsync: Blender, Makehuman + Rhubarb

NEWS FLASH!

We can now do fully automated nine-phoneme lipsinc, using the same Program that Ron Gilbert and his team used on Thimbleweed Park.

Rhubarb Lipsync is created by Daniel S Wolf, and the Blender addon is created by Scaredyfish.

There are a lot of links in this tutorial, so here goes…

First there’s the software:

I was really exited to discover this – even if it makes my previous tutorials obsolete!

 

13 TEETH

Short film and accompanying interviews created from Sheffield Festival of the Mind

Accompanying interviews:

To quote the festival’s press:

“Mike Futcher and Mark Gwynne Jones’s short film is a gothic thriller about a man who thinks the voices in his head are coming from his teeth. His quest to extract them (eek!) leads to a shocking revelation.
Based on Gwynne Jones’s narrative poem, the film mixes live action and animation to brilliantly unsettling effect. A rare exponent of dentistry noir, it asks the big question: what is behind consciousness?
In the accompanying documentary, The Making of 13 Teeth, Sheffield academics talk us through some of the film’s most striking images, including skeletons, nerves and teeth.
The film is unsuitable for young children.”
