Special effects firm and uni reinforce links
A Royal Society Fellowship will ensure the relationship between the University of Bath and the animation company behind Harry Potter and Inception continues to deepen.
Dr Darren Cosker, a researcher in the university's department of computer science, has been awarded a fellowship which will allow the continuation of facial animation research be- tween the university and special effects giant Double Negative.
Dr Cosker will spend four years working in collaboration with the company's research and development team to take the technology used to create facial animation to the next level.
He has worked closely with Double Negative over recent years, exploring the problems faced by artists in producing life-like facial animations for use in films.

Following his successful application for the Royal Society Fellowship, Dr Cosker said: "Double Negative is a world-leading special effects company – they are right at the front of development and innovation in this sector.
"The opportunity to work with them on the next generation of animated film is extremely exciting for me as an individual, and also for the university's dedicated Centre for Digital Entertainment.
"I am hoping that my fellowship will further develop the centre's relationship with Double Negative and create even more opportunities for our students in the future."
