In the trailer for Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’, Hugo looks up at his father and says, ‘Who built him?’ and his father replies, ‘I would think a magician.’
Not a magician but a very dedicated team of prop makers who are proud to have created the automaton for Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’. It is due to be launched around Thanksgiving this year.
Brian Selznick the author of ‘the Invention of Hugo Cabret” saw the automata for the first time and said that he was shocked by their ‘beauty’ and ‘brilliance’.
Take a look at the trailer when you get a second and please be assured that everything you see is for real, none of the automata are digital or optical effects.
