You had two consecutive thoughts when watching the first trailer for L.A. Noire. 1.) Oh my god that’s so awesome. 2.) Oh my god how did it get so awesome?

It turns out there’s a giant dome of cameras that monitor an actor’s face from nearly every angle, translating their performance into the game engine.
The trailer shows performance in the studio and translation into the game, and damn if it ain’t cool as hell.
