CELEBRITY FACE MASHUPS



Written by Aisha Nozari

Today I discovered the Youtube channel 'FaceMashups', I think I may be a little late on the scene but I hear these videos are going down an absolute treat. It's a pretty basic concept, literally being a blending of two celebrities faces. The guy behind the whole thing is known simply as 'Chase' and his process, although somewhat simple, is highly tedious.

After choosing two celebrities, Chase then scours the web for footage, editing it all down to just a few clips. He then combines the body and upper face footage with that of the talking celebrity. A typical two - minute video takes around four hours to make and although the Youtube channel has been active less than a month it's already had over 2 million views.

Here's what Chase himself had to say about the project, 'through some clever and tedious - masking - motion stabilization, and the motion tracking, I am able to lock the superimposed mouth onto the other's head so that it follows their movements realistically.'

I personally find them really fucking weird and am a little depressed I watched that Emma Watson/Steve Buscemi one on a full stomach but whatevs.
