This is made possible using the technique called motion capture. Nowadays a lot of movies are made with the motion capture technique. With this technique it’s possible to make more realistic movements for humans and humanoid animals by adding small globes of light on key points on the human body like the joints or the smaller more complex muscles on your face for more realistisc facial expression in games and movies.
