Remington supervised and directed performance capture sessions featuring Thomas Haden Church (Flint Marko / Sandman), Topher Grace (Eddie Brock / Venom) and James Franco (Harry Osborne / Goblin) for "Spider-man 3".
In the 'Birth of Sandman' sequence, Remington worked closely with Animation Supervisor Spencer Cook and Character Setup TD Brian Burks to ensure that the erosion of facial features did not remove Thomas Haden Church's expressiveness that was key to conveying the characters emotional state.
Spider-man 3 | Facial Capture Animation Process
The facial pipeline for "Spider-man 3", including rigging and animation was overseen by Remington.
The Sony Imageworks FACS pipeline was integrated as a secondary system to punch up facial detail such as furrows, wrinkles and deformations where markers didn't exist.
