Marvel’s Spider-Man Starring Tobey Maguire, Willem Dafoe, Kirsten Dunst & Alfred Molina [DeepFake]

“Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Willem Dafoe and Alfred Molina (Sam Raimi trilogy cast) in Marvel’s spider-man PS4 game.”

“I created this video using DeepFake technology. DeepFaceLab 2.0 by IPerov was used to create the models and perform the character’s training. I created a face-set for each actor and then trained the 192DF model separately for each scene.

All raw footage was heavily edited in an entertaining trailer-style. XSef masking applied to some characters. I used my own model trained over 1M iterations. All models training were performed on NVidia 1080Ti and 1070 Ti GPU mounted together.”
