Welcome back, (CG) Audrey!
If you haven’t seen this commercial for Galaxy chocolates—also known as Dove chocolate outside of UK and Ireland—you need to give it a closer look. This commercial filmed in Italy’s Amalfi Coast area boasts incredible visual effects, including its actress.
Oscar-nominated (Gravity) visual-effects company Framestore (as well as work on Skyfall, RoboCop, and Walking With Dinosaurs, to name a few) spent months developing a full-CG Audrey Hepburn for this advertisement, working with UK ad agency AMV BBDO. Read more about the extensive process on Framestore’s website.
It’s no surprise that her iconic eyes and smile were the most difficult parts for the team of four animators, but I think they really captured Hepburn well.
