Lifelike Animatronic Facehugger Practical Effects Puppet!

We meet effects artist Jesse Velez of Raptor House Effects, whose team created this animatronic Alien Facehugger for the 40th anniversary theatrical re-release of Alien back in 2018. Engineered from 14 servo motors that drive mechanical linkages along each “finger”, this creature creeps alive with three remote control operators puppeting its mesmerizing movements. Jesse gives us a demo of this practical creature effect at SiliCon!

To see videos of the mechanical understructure in action, visit http://www.raptorhousefx.com and click on REELS. Design Lead, Sculpt, Skin, and Paint by Jesse Velez. Mechanical Design by Cameron Boyce. Thanks to Mike of PropsToHistory for the puppeting assist!
