I thought this was pretty cool and wanted to share.
Its from GDC , and its Judd Simantov , 3D artist and co-founder of Game Character Academy.
He's showing some of the techniques they used for their upcoming game "The Last of Us"
The cinamtics are really well done, and I really like the look and the animation of the characters.
I especially like the facial setup they used, which is all joints, with a lot of attention to detail, especially in the eye movments. Something that the recent nVidia / face works demo, was lacking.( but don't get me wrong, that demo is amazing!!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5d1ZOYU4gpo
