That was amazing. One or two slightly weird bits, but I recon only people like us will really notice. Fantastic work. Pitty its just used to sell chocolate, love to see it used in a different context.

First shot looked a little off but the second time they show her she totally looked real. Amazing job.

Well, this is highly personal obviously, but now that I've found it on YouTube I must say it most definitely wasn't her IMHO. With a less well-known person they might have pulled it off, as it is undoubtedly impressive, but this is still too deep into the "uncanny valley" (at least to me).

Unbelivable! I thought you used footage for most of the shots and added a few 3D render here and there! I'm amazed if all of her shot were cg!

Ugh, I hate that ad. Rhyming slang isn't a great way to sell a product, and their implementation of the concept makes my skin kinda crawl. It's horrid.

I think this new Framestore ad is pretty well done, but then, their commercials department has always managed to deliver good looking results. Interesting to see they've started using Arnold too.

Although, is anyone else mildly disturbed by the trademarking of Hepburn's name in the article?

If they choose black & white, probably it would be more perfect, but really well done.

I agree. But... I've seen so many of her movies that IMO this really IS her.

Excellent job!

yeah, i remember this as well. the audrey back then was more 'breakfast at tiffany's' while the one in the commercial is a younger audrey. i have quite a large audrey collection and from what i can tell, she's mostly spot on. a few times her eyes go a bit odd, but overall amazing job...

@DSW - And that's where it gets somewhat murky as "the uncanny valley" is all about personal perception... So don't take this as me trying to convince you, just me trying to explain a little better
The real Audrey Hepburn™ had a vibrancy, a liveliness and that's what I am missing here. The virtual Audrey Hepburn™ looks eerily dead in her expression. But again: IMHO...

I'm impressed by the artistry, but these digital doubles always give me the creeps. I must be exceptionally sensitive to the uncanny valley or something. There's two passages, the first shot of her tilting her head back looking out the window in the bus second in the final shot as she reclines in pleasure with the chocolate. What it is about those two that gives me a shudder I can't quite say. The word that comes to mind is "blankness." It's like for just those brief moments, something goes missing and I'm looking at a doll again. It's definitely one of the best double sequences I've ever seen, but still not feeling it.

Saying if this is realistic would depend on the context of:
How much movement there is in the face, and what kind of cg it is.

It is a good result. Not really different from what we already know.
The face lacks motion, I'm sure this is because it has more changes of looking good with a limited (simplified) movement.

The stupidity of streaming..
Just for fun, I've uploaded the original streaming, youtube one has bad quality:

I think it is for me in the creepy "uncanny valley" but at a level that is also able show some good work.
I must say i didn't like some character animation and this has nothing to do with Audrey digital double, it seems nervous and off.

Technically amazing but unsettling. I kept being reminded of Sean Young in Blade Runner.
