Scott visits Spectral Motion and talks to Mike Elizalde about collaborating with Guillermo Del Toro, interpreting iconic comic book characters into screen characters and the versatility and durability of animatronics. Also fighting robots, jaw-dropping creatures that didn't get featured in the movies they were created for and a practical character with a face as expressive as anything made with CGI.

Did You Know?


When the episode went on to revolve around animatronics, director Jack Bennett proposed ending with Scott's hand getting caught in Edward the Troll's jaws, forcing the crew to cut it off at the wrist. He asked Mike Elizalde if there were any fake arms lying around the shop. Elizalde provided the actual fingerless hand prop Spectral Motion had created for Looper (2012), and with the addition of some fake blood the new ending was devised. See more »
