In January, I was asked to do an age progression for a TV show in Lebanon. The missing child was three when she was taken while playing outside and would now be fourteen.
I was given some photographs of the child, her siblings, and parents. The photos are, like most family photos, not optimal for age progression purposes. I’d like photos where the person is facing straight on to the camera with good lighting and a high pixel count but you work with what you get. After I did the digital drawing, the producer asked for a description of how the work is done. They’ve not had a forensic artist in Lebanon before, and they were interested in how the process works. They asked for video of the digital work and a Skype interview to help bring attention to the case.
The show garnered great ratings and they received many calls on possible leads for the case.
