    Excerpt from stop motion film "Mary and Max". One of my favorite shots is the subway. I used motion control to rock the carriage and move the background bridge framework and buildings. The moving bridge structure also gave the lighting a nice flicker. John Lewis the animator just had to animate things like the apple on the floor and the rocking motion of the handgrips, plus a few blinks for Max.

      Recording from a live performance in London 2007. I designed the robot for a project by artist Margie Medlin. It is controlled in real-time by rotational motion sensors on the dancer Carlee Mellow. The control signals are transmitted via radio link to the robot, and can be intercepted simultaneously by a computer running Motion Builder software. This data can be recorded for later playback, or used for real-time control of an onscreen avatar.
