I refrained myself from posting this from another Youtuber a few days ago, but now that the news broke litteraly EVERYWHERE, I think it’s time. Here is the deepfaked footage of Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian. As you’ll see, Deepfake is way superior to CGI technology when it comes to accurately portraying an actor on the body of someone else. I have no idea why no one uses this in movies yet, but they really should!
Unfortunately there isn’t much I can do to improve the animation/mouth syncing, if I had acess to the body double footage before they applied the CGI, deep fake would be a definite improvement. Hopefully they release some behind the scenes footage eventually so I can give that a try.
Also, I only had 4 days spare to do this deepfake before the holidays, I’m not 100% happy with the quality but here it is anyway. Enjoy!
