Dolls in the Dollhouse

Dolls are living in the dollhouse!  While I tried to avoid implementing dolls for as long as possible, we finally started work on creating highly realistic animated dolls around photographs.  We are using some fascinating 3D technology that basically wraps a face around a 3D mesh and implements the face onto the 3D body.  The face is then automatically animated (blinks, smiles) to avoid making the rooms look like they are populated by zombies.  It looks a little strange in a still shot but quite magical in the actual house.

Our Ella Doll is especially lovely with her long red hair and yellow dress.  Our art director, Eric Decker, did an amazing job with the lace on her apron.
