This is a cool effect and I'd like to know how they did it. Is it javascript? and if so how does it get the cursor position in relation to the heads?

Hi elliottbenzle,

It's a custom javascript they wrote based in jquery.  The links are at the bottom of the page.

they are simply replacing the current image with another after a certain interval.

You can scroll down the source to see the various tools used to do the same

for each person they took 8 black & white and one color photo, total 9

for cristi for example: colored, center one:

others can be found by replacing cc with one of these
dir=['c','s','sv','v','nv','n','ne','e','se','s','c1','cc']

http://s3.amazonaws.com/lateralmedia1/cristi_s.jpg
...
http://s3.amazonaws.com/lateralmedia1/cristi_c1.jpg
http://s3.amazonaws.com/lateralmedia1/cristi_cc.jpg

on mouse move they find the mouse x,y relative to each image... then for each image they change the src...

Can easily be done with a simple multi-image rollover behavior in Dreamweaver... All you need are the images for each face in the left forward and right position.

Here is a great tutorial to get you started.
