How Brad Pitt Was Made Old and Short

What I hoped would be a DVD extra for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was largely shown on the CBS Evening News last week. Thanks, Katie Couric!

That's sort of how I guessed the filmmakers created the "young" Benjamin Button, but it's still pretty cool to see the process at work.

You can also see a video of Brad Pitt's make-up job here.

UPDATE: Here's a slideshow from nytimes.com that shows more of the motion capture work that was done.
