Martin Breidt

Position: Research Technician  Unit: Bülthoff

In my understanding, a Technical Director (TD) should bridge the gap between art and technology, creativity and engineering, intuition and science. That is what I am trying to do at the MPI in the field of 3D facial animation, in particular.

Areas of Interest: Computer graphics, 3D animation, visual effects, 3D + 4D scanning, motion capture, video technology, visualization & realtime rendering.

Here's where I work (view on OpenStreetMap)

I am part of the Cognitive Engineering group where we develop and use systems from Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning with methods from psychophysics in order to investigate fundamental cognitive processes. For this, we make use of our Face and Motion Capture facilities as well as the 3D face scanning systems in our department.

Having received a Diplom (Masters) in Computer Science from the University of Tuebingen, I continued my interest in applied computer graphics at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Film Academy in Ludwigsburg, where I specialized as Technical Director for Visual Effects. Since 2003 I am working as Research TD at the MPI, developing new methods for believable 3D facial animation. In 2012, I completed my PhD in Computer Science on the topic of data-driven facial animation.
