Animatronics & Robotics for Film & Television

The Xpress performance system has been used to perform 1.5 tonne hydraulic robots, fire breathing dragons,  animatronic puppets and computer generated characters.

 

Xpress is a computer-aided puppeteering system designed and manufactured by micromagic systems for complex animatronics or live time CG character performance.  Used in conjunction with Micromagic's suite of custom controls, it allows many intricate moves to be performed simultaneously.  With the addition of motion filters and gain effectors, a single puppeteer is able to create a detailed and truley organic performance.

 

Check the portfolio section for details of characters Xpress has helped bring to life.
