Me, Myself and FACS..

August 9, 2009


I’ve just begun teaching a couple of tech guy’s and myself the FAC’s manual (Facial Action Coding System) by Paul Ekman and co. It’s a pretty incredible manual as it teaches every facial movement you can do, (around 60 or so) there intensities and there combinations. In terms of a system we could describe it as a non-linear pose system that allows multiple other poses as inputs. The nice thing with this is that it ties directly into the current book I’m reading – ‘Emotions Revealed’.

Also I’ve been studying micro-expressions, which are the subtle emotional triggers (10th of second stuff) that can tell sub-consciously what a person is emoting.
