「We want to Age Reduce Jackie(64), to his 20's」


Actor Jackie Chan has been a well known global action star since he was in his twenties, and still is around the world with an enthusiastic fan base since, so this VFX retouch work required extreme care, sophistication, and attention to details.


At foton inc., we not only merely "portray" a young image of the subject, but by utilizing our very own「Age Reduction VFX」methods, we analyze the younger subject's actual face and apply our analysis to our VFX work as if the subject had just slipped in time. We continuously thrive to pursue further technological development.


Below are the results of Age Reduction VFX on Jackie Chan
