This is ‘Spectral Motion’ (not Stop Motion)

January 28, 2013

An innovative, fresh, creative, and ‘thinking out of the box’ special effects character-creature studio known as Spectral Motion, with HEAVY EMPHASIS on the real world tactile (not cgi simulated), created by highly talented and skilled artists, craftspeople’s, & technician’s HANDS, using materials and methods such as metals, rubber, plastics, clay, wood, cable, electronics, radio controlled, etc.. I consider those in the special effects field doing miniatures, models, live character puppetry, make-up effects, and other related … as ‘kissing cousins‘ to Stop Motion. WE are all in the struggle with the constant onslaught & worldwide takeover by the CGI forces out there ;) … although stop motion has always had more of a struggle.

    Hey you guys should check out “FACE OFF” on Tuesday nights on the sci-fi network.
    Very enjoyable television, And shows that they (Hollywood) seem to really want to nurture monster make-up artists still.

    This is why I’m interested in the haunt/haunted house industry. There are a number of companies that are doing fantastic work not unlike pre-digital special effects. The design work is wonderful, the electronic and pneumatic work clever with the final result quite impressive. The real-time response from the “audience” in a haunt attraction is a real thrill.

    Outstanding to say the least.

  7. Dave Hettmer says:

    Spectral Motion’s work is top notch. It was such a disappointment in the Hellboy films when they went to monsters that were totally CG, because the Spectral beasts were real.
