I worked on creating hundreds of facial blendshapes for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I was lucky enough to work on one of the main characters - Buck. The only Gorilla in the movie.

Buck usually kept to himself. Was not interested in your monkey business.

Scream face shapes needed to be perfect. Buck was always angry.

Unstoppable. Much like Weta's team of amazing character artists and facial modelers.
