“LIVE FACE by Reallusion made my jaw drop, both literally and figuratively when I used it. LIVE FACE is the game changer I’ve been waiting for to execute funny, quick animations utilizing the iPhone X for live TV.”

Jesse Griffith – Chief Animator, Jimmy Kimmel Live  
“Thousands of dollars of cumbersome equipment and connections are being whittled down into an app that students can easily use on an iPhone X they already have, on or off campus. Not only does LIVE FACE simplify the entire educational process, but it looks to bridge the significant gap that students face once they graduate and try to incorporate technology into their own pipelines.”  
John Blalock, Digital Applications Supervisor, Chapman University
