I don't like it. It's so fake, it's dripping paint    :(

To me the best modeling, texturing and animation is still Shrek.   :)

It was easy to tell that it was fake, the movement is too generic and smooth, and the lips and eyes are too big, but that is pretty astonishing.

I think that with mabye a realistic sneeze or something... it would look more real.

in terms of realistic humans, i'd probably agree.  in terms of stylised humans, though, The Incredibles and Ratatouille are better - i think the fact that they are obviously not trying to be photo-real probably helps audiences to accept them, but Pixar still put a lot of effort into texturing and rendering, so that they don't look fake and plasticky like a lot of other studios' CG humans do.  i have to admit i find myself responding better to Linguini than to this new character, even though Linguini's nose is 10 times the size of what any real human would have!

the big problem for photo-real CG humans is, though: if you want real, then why not just shoot live-action, for pete's sake?  i've never heard any filmmaker satisfactorily answer that one.

You guys all say how weird and fake it is... If a video like this appeared in the middle of your favourite talk show and you didn't know about it, I'm sure you wouldn't recognize it. If you're trying to find something bad, you'll always find it, but this video is pretty awesome!

Yeah, is it just a head and shoulders?  if it were viewed from a greater distance, i'd easily be fooled.

I agree with Kub. If you guys didn't tell me I would have no idea that was CG :-[

The key to the movement, however, is a real live actor.  Sorry, as a member of SAG I tend to lookout for my counterparts! ;)

Very impressive, isn't that a type of expression mapping by an actor and the cg is just duplicating each expression?
The eyes look a little freaky, still pretty awesome

I'd like to play a game like that, just to see how realistic it could be.
