Hugo Automaton – No visual Effects Needed


Our Hugo journey stretched over 8 months within which our team of 26 dedicated prop makers produced 15 automata. Each of the mechanical men were tailor-made to work within particular scenes of the motion picture. We created two fully functional writing automata, as well as  lightweight models for Hugo (Asa Butterfield ) to run with. Take a look at our making of video below.
