Talking Head Projection was an experiment in enhanced tele-presence. The idea was an extension of the popular head projection in Disneys Haunted Mansion, where the moving image of a woman is projected on a face-shaped screen, resulting in true 3D (and erroneously referred to as "holography"). Talking Head Projection used a moving face-shaped screen, mounted in a pan-tilt gimbal, whose movement was driven by the actual head movement of our subject. This movement was encoded and recorded during filming, along with image and sound, on super8 film.
