In this paper we present preliminary results of work towards a videorealistic visual speech synthesiser. A generative model is used to track the face of a talker uttering a series of training sentences and an inventory of synthesis units is built by representing the trajectory of the model parameters with spline curves. A set of model parameters corresponding to a new utterance is formed by concatenating spline segments corresponding to synthesis units in the inventory and sampling at the original frame rate. The new parameters are applied to the model to create a sequence of images corresponding to the talking face.
