I’ve just been made aware of a project going on in Dundee by someone at the University of Abertay, it’s launching today and I’m a bit gutted I can’t make it with such short notice.
However, it’s all about “developing emotionally engaging procedural character animations. The research will be underpinned by a comparative study of psychologically derived data relating to the expression and interpretation of emotion, with film based acted and animated performances.”
All sounds very exciting! Check it out at http://emotionalavatars.typepad.com/blog/
