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.
