This interactive website reveals how the feature documentary, The River of My Dreams - a Portrait of Gordon Pinsent, was made implementing the motion capture technology.
Revealing ‘behind the scenes’ detail, the visual magic of the motion capture techniques used to create digital versions of Gordon Pinsent at various stages and ages of his life. We demonstrate how Gordon today, step by step, is transferring his present day facial expressions and body movements into the younger versions of himself. Thus, Gordon today, is able to play himself at different ages throughout the film.
To illustrate how we accomplished this motion capture technology at such a reasonable cost allowing us to work within the documentary budget scopes. It is our aim to focus especially on sharing this technology with a younger audience who will be fascinated by this cutting-edge digital technology we developed especially for the film.
