Behind the Scenes: Andy Serkis shows us why he should be nominated for RISE

Today, Hitflix posted an exclusive video showing a CG-free Serkis as he performs the emotional scene of Caesar saying goodbye to Franco's character. The first half of the video is Serikis with just the sensors on his face and body, and the second half shows the finish product that was seen in the movie. If there was any doubt of what he brought to the film, this clip will put that to rest.

Oscar nominations haven't been announced yet, but I hope that academy members realize that this is the future of movies, and we will probably be seeing more and more performances that use this type of motion capture.
