The iconic ED-209 is the latest VFX artifact we discuss.
In this new VFX Artifacts podcast episode, Ian Failes from befores & afters chats to Phil Tippett about the design and animation of ED-209 at Tippett Studio for RoboCop (1987). Brought to life as post a full-scale prop and a stop-motion armature, ED-209 has become one of Tippett Studio’s most iconic film characters. Hear Phil discuss his origins in this interview, which was conducted a few years ago.
Tippett will also be a major presence at the upcoming VIEW Conference, participating in panels on 25 years since Dragonheart, and on his latest film, MAD GOD.
