He fixed Mark Hamill’s face in the Mandalorian.

“A young Luke Skywalker showed up to the excitement, then disappointment of fans who raised eyebrows at his VFX-heavy look.”

“Enter the YouTuber known as Shamook, whose The Mandalorian deepfake, published in December, has earned nearly 2 million views for improving the VFX used to de-age Mark Hamill. It was so good Shamook then earned a new gig with Lucasfilm and its visual effects division Industrial Light and Magic.”

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Thanks! I heard about the Paul McCartney video but didn't watch it.

He does amazing work, but sometimes the whole thing with deepfake technologies looks a little terrifying.

Yes. It is a bit terrifying. Some deepfakes are very lifelike!

Some deepfakes

In Scorsese's The Irishman, de-aging Robert De Niro (Frank Sheeran in The Irishman) to his Taxi Driver (1976) days wasn't convincing. Hoffa, played by Al Pacino in the show, went missing in 1975.

Shamook de aged De Niro.

How the de aging worked in the Irishman.

Indiana Jones 5 will need talent like his after Harrison Ford's accident and having his doubles step in.

Free Guy movie

Ryan Reynold's face deepfaked on a bodybuilder is really odd looking.
