CGI Shakespeare : Cool! Highly geeky.

I've posted about computer animated Shakespeare videos before, but this is the first time I've seen a computer-generated creation try to actually act.  Pendulum Studios put together this scene of Marc Anthony doing the "All is lost..." speech ("triple turn'd whore!").  Pretty intriguing stuff.  There's an actor doing the voice, that's not computer generated.  But it's interesting to see how far the movements and facial expressions have come.  The graphics purists are already picking on things like the rendering of the hands, but I'm more interested in the face.

Thanks Lis :). I'd seen that and passed it along to a cat-lady friend of mine, but didn't think to post it.
