These are some of the different techniques that we use to realise our physical special-effects. We are creatively using mechanics and electronics to actuate chaotic physical materials and processes.
These machines are often very pretty in themselves, but in general they are a means to an end… We build them in order to manipulate materials or reactions.
Each special-effect we make inevitably involves something unknown or unexpected, each of our machines is a prototype. During construction we try to make our machines as modular and flexible. This offers us the possibility to quickly adjust the parameters during the shoot.
We’ve divided these techniques we use into fairly arbitrary categories, (which quite often overlap).
