Photo Animation

Converting Still Photos into Talking Animated Characters

Deep-Learning based Generative Neural Networks (GANs) to create talking animated characters from still pictures.. Here, I first converted still pictures of famous actors into Anime Characters like this:

And then applied Deep Fake Image Animation to create talking Animated Characters to lip-sync with the actor in the reference video (center) :

Final Output:

Only the first video from Shri-420 is real, and used as a reference for generating animations. The rest are all fake or artificially generated by the neural-network.
