In this paper, we present a method for removing identity-related information from image sequences for the privacy protection of individuals. The face, despite being an important feature to identify a person, is not the only body part that needs to be obscured. Therefore, we propose to replace the whole body of individuals by their silhouette defined by moving edges.
