Thanks very much for checking it out! The face was digital, and was warped pieces of the performer's face, tracked back onto his normal features, so it looks fairly natural with the movement and whatnot.
Yeah, that face was awesome. Some of the acting felt a little rushed, like it was being read from the page. I felt that some motivated pauses between the lines would have helped. But, when the shit went down, it got intense and I got sucked in! Really nice job with the effects, editing, camera work, lighting, and sound.
Thanks to your website in the end credits, I discovered FRANKLIN... I'll post over there, as I missed last year's thread.
