So looking for courses online and came across this website for Animatronics that has some pretty interesting facts and ideas for hold to build animatronics and the likes of it all. The videos are relatively inexpensive in relation to the amount of information and experience that your being provided with. Well enjoy your life, Love it, Live it, Have a Great Day.

 

 

Animatronics Dancing Doll

As you all know in the process of building out the designs in my head to one day have at a theme or amusement park. But in the mean time in between time I like to look at animatronics and get ideas and what not. Also found this video out of japan.

And last but not least a video of a robot Restaurant in Japan. Aspire to create shows like this. this would be so fun to pull off. Man. It would be so fun. In time everything as they say right. LOL. You can really feel the energy and vibe of the place as well.

Animatronics & Movie Stage EFX

So since I was a kid I was fascinated by movies such as Robocop, Thriller, and ET. I didn’t realize until I get older that other people had created this things and they were controlled by a process called Animatronics. The design process is pretty awesome. But I have no clue as to how to begin or what goes where. But what I’ve learned is that in this age of information anything and everything is out there. but you have to discipline yourself to get there. So a website that I found some really cool images in regards to design and special EFX is www.mageefx.com

Here are some of the images that inspire me:

Pretty cool indeed. Man I cant wait to come up with some creative ideas of my own and incorporate them into short films and plays. So in the meantime I was watching a video regarding getting into animatronics here.

Enjoy. Until next time folks. As Bob Dylan said The loser now, will be later to win.
