Digital Domain will present its most recent project in Art Futura 2000: a digital recreation of singer James Brown for the "Experience Music Project", the new Rock & Roll Museum in Seattle.

In this unprecedented work, the creative team from Digital Domain digitizes James Brown's face, recreating it to look 40 years younger and pasting it onto a shooting of a dancer moving to the rhythm of "Sex Machine". The result, part of one of the top attractions at the "Experience Music Project", is surprising for both its realism and advanced technique.

Digital Domain, co-founded by James Cameron, is responsible for some of the most acknowledged visual effects in movie history, including "Titanic" and "The Fifth Element".
