Tiny animatronic puppets simply made

In this vintage video from Stan Winston School, film director and FX designer, Stephen Norrington (Blade, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) explains how he built the chestburster mechanism used in the ALIEN movie and how pleased he was about the result. The motions made through these techniques are gorgeously realistic and the simplicity of the mechanism is nothing but genius. If you plan to make very small animatronic puppets, this video is an absolute must-see for you. These mechanisms could be used for anything from small snakes to tentacles and much more!
