Just How Did Star Wars Brought People Back From The Dead?


tarkin-32x_16f7b5db

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story having been in theatres for a few weeks now, one of the biggest talking points of the film has been the digital resurrection of the late Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin. While there were plenty of rumors prior to release about the character appearing in the film, the villain ended up having an unexpectedly sizeable role as a secondary antagonist.

Reactions to the use of Cushing’s skeletal visage have ranged from praise over the effects to derision over morality, though the team behind the film maintains that his involvement was imperative to the story, given Tarkin’s position as Commander of the Death Star in Episode IV. “If he’s not in the movie, we’re going to have to explain why he’s not in the movie,” said Lucasfilm story development executive Kiri Hart to the New York Times. “This is kind of his thing.”

Industrial Light And Magic worked on Tarkin, with permission and input from Cushing’s estate. Actor Guy Henry portrayed the character on set, with his facial performance replaced by a digital recreation of Cushing in the film’s final cut. The team at ILM used archived daily footage from A New Hope to study and simulate the facial tics of Cushing. “When Peter Cushing makes an ‘aah’ sound, he doesn’t move his upper lip,” explained ILM chief creative officer John Knoll. “He only opens his jaw about halfway, and makes this square shape with his lower lip, that exposes his lower teeth.” Before these nuances in Cushing’s face were accounted for, the team felt like their creation resembled a relative of Cushing, and not the actor exactly. However, their first rule was that “realism trumped likeness.”

While ILM was certain they could pull off Tarkin as a fully-realized character in the film, there were back-up plans just in case, though it would have resulted in a significantly reduced on-screen presence for the character. “We did talk about Tarkin participating in conversations via hologram, or transferring that dialogue to other characters,” Knoll said.

Some of the criticism stemming from the use of Cushing’s likeness in Rogue One was that it opened the door to using the digital appearances of deceased actors in other films. Knoll, however, said he doesn’t see that happening, with Rogue One acting as a special cirumstance. “I don’t imagine that happening,” Knoll said. “This was done for very solid and defendable story reasons. This is a character that is very important to telling this kind of story. It is extremely labor-intensive and expensive to do. I don’t imagine anybody engaging in this kind of thing in a casual manner. We’re not planning on doing this digital re-creation extensively from now on. It just made sense for this particular movie.”

When it comes to Italian/Australian tri-lingual, bi-sexual models, who go out of their way to stand for something positive, Stefania Ferrario is on the top of my list.  The stunningly beautiful model caught our attention during her #DropThePlus campaign, which she used make people more aware of the fact that the modeling term “Plus Sized” can be extremely damaging to minds of young girls.  Stefania also shaved her head in 2012 to prove that bald is beautiful and to raise funds and awareness for cancer, alopecia and trichitillomania (an OCD disorder that leads to suffers pulling out their own lashes, eyebrows and head hair).  She feels as though in society today there is far too much emphasis placed on hair, and that girls should not feel any less feminine or attractive for being bald or having extremely short hair for it can be just as sexy. And when you want hair you can easily have fun playing with wigs?  Be it short hair, or long, we appreciate both Stefania’s work, and the positivity her work stands for.  Check her out.

The Lovely Ms. Iskra Lawrence. One Of The Hottest Women On Instagram.

Iskra Lawrence is may be one of the very many lovely women who have Instagram entranced, but she is quite unique in more ways than one.  The 25-year-old model from Worcestershire, England, is technically a plus-sized model in the industry.  But she’s turned that into an asset for herself and others, making a name for herself with realistic ads and empowering female body-image campaigns. She explained the complexities of being labeled a plus-sized model last year to Cosmo.  Check out some more of her photos, and her powerful words below.

Absolutely every time I’ve ever met anyone and I’ve told them I’m a plus-size model, [I get told I’m not plus-size enough] without fail! Even when I’ve booked jobs and I’m on set, stylists and hair and makeup artists have commented that I don’t look big enough to be a plus model. I try to re-educate them about what a plus-size model means. Many of us lead healthy lifestyles, train in the gym regularly, and are in great shape. We represent a huge range of not only sizes, but also shapes, which I find really beautiful. I’m very proud to say I’m a plus model. I’ve learned to love my body and be proud of all my curves, and I’m so, so grateful every day to be able to work in the industry I love at my natural size.It’s frustrating that society is so set on categorizing everyone. But in the fashion industry it is difficult—most samples of straight-size are a 0 to 4 and plus is 14 to 16. It costs more to produce a range of different sample sizes. It would just be nice if everyone could accept a range of different size models without having to label them all—we are models, not numbers.
