Adam Savage’s Miniature Model from A.I. Artificial Intelligence!

Adam shares one of his contributions to the practical filming models for Steven Spielberg’s A.I. film, made while working in the ILM model shop. This tiny office set was used for one of the motion-controlled flight scenes toward the end of the film, when the characters are flying through the post-apocalyptic New York ruins. Adam talks about the making of these pieces, including one part he’s particularly proud of!

  1. I remember Adam talking about AI back in an early Still Untitled podcast and being really fascinated listening to him describe the special effects and how the achieved some of the shots in the movie. While I love Still Untitled, I do miss the old form factor where there seemed to be a topic centered around a movie (like Blade Runner), a technology (like motion capture) or a skill (like prop-making) and Adam would give us a brain dump of knowledge on the subject. This video gave me a little taste of that again!
