HOW WE DID IT
When designing mechanical costume rigs it is really important to establish the required visual needs and understand the environment it is being used in. Working from the initial storyboard we knew that majority of the shots were going to be talking heads, this meant mechanical input would have to be suitable for audio and operated from below. Whilst it is possible to create a fully motorised, organic fluid movements are far more convincing and adaptable with your own fair hands. With a small assistance from post we were able paint out and mask brake cables and rods for the wide and action shots. Although this design maybe rudimentary in principle it was appropriate for the 10 days shoot, providing a convincing and reliable effect.
