Cool Videos: Animatronics are not dead!
You might think, what with the prevalence of CGI, that the art of animatronics is dead. But if you saw YOUR HIGHNESS this weekend, you know that they're still alive and well in the form of robotic birds, pervy puppets and big-dicked minotaurs. And now, artist John Nolan, has released a show reel of some of his best animatronics work that gives you a great behind-the-scenes look at the models.
Nolan has worked on HELLBOY II, CLASH OF THE TITANS, the HARRY POTTER films, "Doctor Who" and much more though I'm not entirely sure where a lot of the creatures in the video are from (I do recognize some CLASH and HELLBOY stuff but there's some other stuff that eludes me). Check out the video below and hopefully the art form won't go the way of the dinosaur anytime soon.
