Paul Scott has been working on this Marionette. Each line is controlled by a little servo motor which kicks depending on how you use a little side program. This particular dance sequence is to Stayin’ Alive.

I may have to see if I can get Paul to record another video showing the behind the scenes work. Watching the servos and looking at the software is equally as fun.

Great job Paul! It came out awesome!

    Did you do anything to get it like this on the web? Looks great and downloads very fast!

    I did not. I really like Vimeo. It’s got great speed and the audio tends to match up much closer to the video than on other hosting sites like youtube.

    If you get around to taking another video, perhaps of the Servos engaging, i’d love to add it to the website as well.
