Computational simulation of the human form has advanced spectacularly over the last few years. This video explores the current cutting edge, revealing how Hollywood studios create the startlingly accurate digital humans we’re now used to seeing on screen.

The first in a new series from The Creators Project, the video explores how high-resolution face and body scanning has transformed the industry, and what all that glorious data can be used to create. It does occasionally get a little creepy — especially the part where one researcher is creating a virtual version of his daughter — but on the whole it’s an amazing insight into where a rapidly advancing industry is right now.
