That season 2 finale of Mandalorianen so the titular lone bounty hunter completes his mission by delivering Grogu (formerly known as Baby Yoda) to the open arms of a Jedi. But not just any Jedi. A young Luke Skywalker appeared for the excitement and then disappointment of fans who raised eyebrows over his VFX-heavy look.

Enter YouTuber known as Shamook, if Mandalorian deep forgery, published in December, has earned nearly 2 million views to enhance the VFX used to older Mark Hamill. It was so good that Shamook then earned a new concert with Lucasfilm and its visual effects division Industrial Light and Magic.

“As some of you may already know, I joined ILM / Lucasfilms a few months ago and have not had time to work on any new YouTube content,” Shamook wrote in the comments section of a newer video. “Now that I’ve gotten into my job, uploads need to start rising again. They will still be slow, but hopefully not with months apart.”

Shamook said in the comments that his job title is “Senior Facial Capture Artist.”

Lucasfilm confirmed the new appointment (via IndieWire).

“[Industrial Light and Magic is] always looking for talented artists and has actually hired the artist who goes after the online character ‘Shamook’, “a Lucasfilm representative said in a statement.

“Over the last many years, ILM has invested in both machine learning and AI as a means of producing compelling visual effects, and it’s been amazing to see momentum build in this space as technology advances.”

This is Shamook’s impressive deepfake (he also got the iren fixed).

Deepfake videos use artificial intelligence to make it look like someone is doing or saying something they never did, as with these Tom Cruise deeply false. In less disturbing area, deepfakes that enhance the visual effects in film seem to be a great addition to your filmmaking resume.
