Few days ago We already seen the trailer of Fugu & Tako - an upcoming short film by Sydney, Australia’s ROBOT VFX that offers a humorous mix of live action and some 200 plus VFX shots. The film’s protagonist swallows a live fugu, also known as puffer fish, and as a consequence develops a fugu-shaped head. The story uses a realistic documentary format with VFX created in Houdini being an essential part of the “surrealistic” fish head effect.
For this project, the answer was Houdini which was used to develop a number of detailed facial animation and tracking techniques. The chosen approach resulted in a character that echoes the voice and character of the actor in a very convincing and original way. Check out full story here!
