I’ve always been fascinated by those in-store displays where the little muffin rotates around at the grocery store, or the coffin lid opens and the skull comes out at the Halloween prop store.
So I decided it was time I learned more about those little props and I’m going to tell you what I learned in this e-book and video kit on learning to make animatronics.
This information was not easy to find, and most of it was not laid out in a simple and straightforward way. So I think you are really going to be pleased with this book!
The first thing I did was search for books on the topic. Library, Amazon, eBay — there are not many! The best I could do was find some children’s books. They actually helped quite a bit!
Then I stopped at the local Michael’s craft store – that’s where I saw the chest with the skull coming out as the lid opens. That’s the one that really peaked my curiosity. So I just stood there and studied the mechanism each time the lid opened. You should do the same thing.
But wait! There’s more 🙂
