Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

[Paramount Pictures/Nickelodeon Movies]

In addition to creating a variety of photorealistic environments for the film, ILM was charged with bringing TMNT’s four eponymous characters — Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Donatello — their sensei and adoptive father, Splinter, and their nemesis Shredder to life for a combined 43 minutes of screen time.

To do so, ILM developed and deployed ILM Muse, the highest resolution, most flexible facial performance capture system produced to date.
