Test Animation Concept Two

A short video featuring an animation test circa 2006, the papier mache skeleton was animated using pulleys, cables springs and counterweights.


The goal for 2010 is to refine these concepts in order to produce reliable, fluid and non-repetitive movements for my props.

You could try adding 'oval' (egg) shaped fly wheels to low powered motors, but also off setting the position of the arms/head so the timing for the movement is also off set through out the piece.

By fixing the cords/pully wires solidly to the 'peek' of each flywhheel this would give both pull & return to the arms etc whilst still using the pivot design you use currently?
