Evolution would like to thank everyone on the cast and crew, an amazing well worked team.

We created these two 3D printed mechanical puppets for Lexus in our London model making workshop. The exoskeleton is 3D printed and is 2.5mm in width over the whole puppet. The tallest character was 11ft high and was designed to move with the subtlety of the human form. Their bodies and limbs are controlled by the rods of the visible puppeteers, the hands have an intricate cable system and the heads are animatronic, to create the small movements that give belief to the personification of an object.

This advert was a combination of 3D printing and large scale model making and cloud special effects. The London model making crew created an 8 x Circuit boards, 3 x times working sewing machine, a rig for two Dreamliner wheels to run down the runway. Also a 1:3 scale dreamliner wing for which we also created smoke special effects of clouds surrounding the model. The most interesting piece to create was the underwater sparking brian, it was a combination of model making and special effects. A great project to work on!
At our special effects London studio we produced, tested and filmed R&D for the liquid special effects.
