The Many Uses of Animatronic Animals

You may not know this, but you have seen animatronics in work more than a few times in your life. You have probably seen a few movies where you didn’t even realize that they are using these because they can be very realistic. Ever since the 70s, they have become a big part of the movie industry, especially with the release since the release of the movies The Thing and Jaws. Considering that Jaws is almost 50 years old, you still cannot recognize that the shark used was actually just an animatronic. With the success of the movie, they became a revelation in the movie industry and then spread to other entertainment industries such as museums and theme parks. We have seen several other uses where they bring animals or characters to life. No matter whether the character is fictional or not, a well-made animatronic can seriously surprise anyone.

Just imagine how realistic can the animatronics be with today’s technology, considering that those from forty or fifty years ago were realistic enough to fool millions of people worldwide. If you want to know more about such animals or characters, you should first how they work and where they are used.

Where are they used?


Animatronics or electronic puppets are electronic mechanisms that can realistically simulate the movement, appearance, and behavior of living or fictional creatures. What makes these robotic mechanisms so good is because they very accurately depict emotions or traits of animals or fictional characters. These mechanisms usually come with a remote control that can be used to control the robot from a certain distance. The control can either do simpler movements such as moving the arms or the head or they can also be made to make more complex movements such as moving the feet to traverse the ground and so on. These types of robots are mostly used for movies to avoid spending millions of dollars on computer-generated imagery or more popularly known as CGI. The film industry uses these mechanisms to add more realism to a movie better than CGI could ever do. Maybe in a few decades, we will see animals that are generated by a computer be more realistic than an animatronic, but since the technology is still not there, these robots still have a long future ahead of them.

The movie Jurassic Park was one of the first movies that truly visualized the nature of dinosaurs. They achieved an accurate and realistic look of the dinosaurs by using these robots. After the release of the film, the whole animatronic industry got a lot more work since everyone wanted to create the next big movie with such realistic robots. Museums also saw the potential of this industry and quickly replaced their boring plastic replicas with these life-like animals. If you have ever been to such a museum, you were probably stunned at how realistic their appearance is, how smooth and flexible the movements can be. For Lifesize Animatronic Animals to appear real, manufacturers must consult with zoologists so they can be created based on true information. If you are looking for such a manufacturer, check this.

How do they work?

Thanks to our increasing knowledge in robotics these last couple of decades and the growing number of mechanical and electrical engineers we can create movements that can even imitate the way humans move. The animatronic industry uses this knowledge we have gathered and the experience of such engineers to create animals or fictional creatures that look very real. For the animal to properly work, the whole development process has got to go through a couple of steps.

The first step is for mechanical and electrical engineers to work together to build the whole mechanical system. If they do not work together, they cannot plan out where the wires will go through or whether the movement will look natural. To create such movements the mechanical engineers use hundreds of gears and advanced hydraulics. The engineer must have an idea on how the final product will look like so they can simulate the fluidness in the movement of animals.

After finishing the whole mechanical system, it is time for the electrical engineers to start working on the electronic part of the system. The electronic control system is basically the brain of the animatronic that controls what the “muscles” (mechanical parts) will do. All those mechanical parts then have to be connected with wires to the electronic control system and form a type of nerve system. The brain of this whole system can then form a connection with the remote control to calibrate the movements.

While the mechanics and technicians are working on the electronic and mechanical system, a group of experts must work on the structural form of the animatronic. They need to create a frame that will realistically depict the form of the animal and to allow enough room for the mechanical parts to move. In other words, they create something similar to the skeleton of the animal. For this process, graphite is the main ingredient to keep it sturdy and strong, but to be light enough to move. If the frame is done by a much heavier material, the mechanical system will either won’t be able to lift the frame or it will need to be a lot more powerful which can be expensive.

The finishing part of this whole process is not for engineers, but for artists. For the skin to look and feel realistic, expert artists on this subject use different types of rubber, foam, and silicone. These materials must also be very durable and resistant to things such as dust, dirt, and water. If the skin is made from quality materials then all the color will fade away in a very short time and that’s a waste of money. Those special materials are usually poured into a mold and left to dry. After they have finally dried, the artists have to accurately draw and color the skin of the animal onto the animatronic. Then finally the “skin” can be attached to the animatronic frame.

So if you ever want to create a realistic experience in your museum or your dinosaur theme park, you should definitely consider getting these animals.



Jon Grissom-Famous Actor In The 80s


Cloyd Jon Grissom born in Alaska became a famous actor in the 80s. As an actor he is known as Jon Grissom. Actually, he worked in only two movies, namely License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream. In both the films Jon Grissom worked with two Coreys, Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. At that time Corey Feldman was 15 years old actor who had a promising career ahead. Jon Grissom was personal assistant to Corey. As a personal assistant Jon became very close to Corey. According to Corey Feldman, Jon used to provide crack and cocaine to 15 years old Corey. They used to do drugs in clubs where Jon Grissom performed sexual act on Corey under the influence of drugs.

Jon Grissom is caught in the web of controversy with recent accusations of child abuse and molestation by Corey Feldman. In 2001 also he was arrested for the child abuse of 14 to 15 years old child and was imprisoned in 2003. Due to his refugee status, Jon Grissom was not registered as a sex offender with the state. According to Megan’s Law, it is mandatory for sex offenders to register with the state. Jon Grissom has a sketchy past. He was arrested in Utah on March 12, 1995 for various criminal charges. Credit card theft, using illegal means of transport and resisting arrest are some of them. In 2000, he spent 3 months in Arizona jail for above mentioned charges.

At present, Jon Grissom lives in Mazatlan, Sinaloa in Mexico. He is active on his Facebook and My Space accounts. Although he has not responded to Corey’s accusations, he recently posted pictures of him with Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. This triggered anger and pain for Corey Feldman. And Jon Grissom became a target of public anger on social media. Eventhough Los Angeles police is aware of Corey’s accusations, they cannot open an investigation against Jon Grissom. To initiate a formal investigation Corey is required to make a formal complaint with the police.

Jon Grissom, born on May 31, 1962 is currently 57 years old. 5 ft 8 in tall Jon has a tattoo on his left arm.  He studied at Amphitheater High School, Tucson, Arizona. He studied psychology from Jan 1991 to April 1995 in the University of Arizona. He had a diverse career in the field of movie production as well as sales management. He has worked as production assistant in movie production companies. As per his Facebook account, his sales management career spans over the period of 10 years starting from may 1985 to may 2006. He worked at Dino De Laurentiis as production specialist. He has listed mind games as his professional skills.Eventhough his acting career is limited to only two films, he is well known as an actor.


In 1988, he made his debut in the world of films. License to Drive was his first film starring Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Richard Masur and Carol Kane. He got the role of a valet in this teen adventure film. The film is about a 16 years old teenager who fails knowledge part of his driving test. The film was described s passable entertainment. The film received only two and half stars out of four from the critics. Eventhough the film was not acclaimed by the critics, it was a success at the box office. It was produced at the budget of $8 million and it made $22 million at the box office.

The next film of Jon Grissom was a teen fantasy called Dream a Little Dream starring Corey Feldman, Jason Robards, Harry Dean Stanton and Piper Laurie. He was assigned the role of a P.E. coach in this film. The film is about mind swap of a married older man with that of a teenager. The film was released simultaneously in 1019 theaters. The film made $2.5 million on opening weekend. However the collection dropped to the half in next week. The reviews were also negative. The music was a plus point of the movie. It was the mix of rock and classic music.

Jon Grissom’s acting career is limited to two movies with insignificant roles. While practicing his acting skills, he served Corey Feldman as a personal assistant during the 80s. According to Corey Feldman, Grissom sexually abused Corey while serving him as a personal assistant. He has given vivid description about the sexual abuse and molestation in his autobiography “Coreyography; A Memoir.” Feldman accuses Jon Grissom of molesting Corey Haim as well. The autobiography was published in 2013.

Corey Feldman is appearing on talk shows revealing details about child abuse which was rampant in Hollywood in 80s. Some Hollywood big shots such as Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and Jeremy Piven have been implicated in the scandals of se*ual harassment of young artists. Jon Grissom is also getting attention in social media because of Feldman’s accusations. In his autobiography Coreyography, Feldman has used the pseudonym Ron Crison for Jon Grissom.

In the book Feldman describes how he and Corey Haim were molested by a man named Ron Crison. It is described in the book how Ron Crison would give him pills before performing se*ual act. He has accused Grissom of molesting Corey Haim as well. Feldman claims he has reported this to San Diego police department. However, the police denies the claim. As a result, they cannot arrest Jon Grissom. Some people even doubt the intentions of Corey Feldman.

Jon Grissom seems to be an undistinguished person with criminal history. His achievements are not very significant. However he is getting a lot of negative attention because of Corey Fledman’s accusations. It is sad that none of the accusations can be proved. Even for the police department it is not possible to arrest him. Se*ual harassment and molestation of children is a serious crime and sex offenders should be dealt with firmly. I believe in coming years people would be more careful and protective about their children. And law enforcement would be more empowered to bring sex offenders to justice.

Katy Jurado Prominent Mexican actress Katy Jurado


There have been many prominent actors and actresses of the previous century that have helped lay down the foundation of Hollywood and brought it to the standards that it is known for today. One of the actresses of the previous century who really took the golden screen by storm was Katy Jurado. Born Maria Cristina Estela Marcela Jurado Garcia, she preferred to call herself only as Katy Jurado. She was one of the top Mexican actresses and acted in film, television and theater.

Unlike many other Hollywood actresses who mainly moved to Los Angeles to pursue their acting careers, Jurado started off her acting career in the neighboring country of Mexico. She received quite a bit of fame during the 1940s and the 50s, in a decade that came to be known as the Golden Age of Mexican cinema. It wasn’t long before she was discovered American film products and was cast into Hollywood, catapulting her fame to new heights.

Early Beginnings

Katy Jurado was born on the 16th of January, in 1924 in Guadalajara, Jalisco. She was the daughter of Luis Jurado Ochoa, a lawyer by profession. Her mother, Vicenta Garcia, was a singer. She had two younger brothers, Luis Raul and Oscar Sergio. Her mother worked at the famous Mexican radio station known as XEW, which is also the oldest radio station in all of Latin America.

Her earlier studies were at a school run by nuns in the Guadalupe neighborhood in Mexico City. She had no desire to pursue acting, and began to study as a bilingual secretary. However, it wasn’t long before her ravishing beauty and charming looks were discovered by famous Mexican filmmakers. Among them was one Emilio Fernandez. He would go on to offer her a role in a film that would change her life.

Her first role, directed by Fernandez, was in the Isle of Passion. The movie was released in 1941. Her parents were strictly against acting, and never gave consent to her pursuing it. However, her acting in The Isle of Passion caught the eye of other directors, and another filmmaker, Mauricio de la Serna, offered her a role in his film No Mataras just a couple of years later.

The contract was presented before her, and she signed it without the consent of her parents. When she told them what she had done, they threatened her to send her to a boarding school far off in Monterrey. This was around the same time she met an ambitious actor by the name of Victor Velazquez. The two hit it off, and they tied the knot soon after.

She later accepted that the primary reason for marrying Velazquez was because it allowed her the freedom to pursue work in the filmmaking industry and to escape from her parents. The marriage was never going to last long, and the two decided to part ways in 1943. Velazquez was the father to two of her kids, Sandra and Victor Hugo.

Over the course of the next seven years, Jurado would go on to do big things. She ended up doing 16 films in this timeframe, acting alongside prominent Mexican film stars like Sara Montiel, Pedro Armendariz, and Pedro Infante. In 1953, she was noticed internationally for her performance in El Bruto. For her performance in the movie, she received the Ariel Award for the Best Supporting Actress. The Ariel Award is the direct equivalent of the Academy Award in Mexico.

Break into Hollywood

img source:

Her big break in Hollywood came when she was working as a movie journalist and a bull fighting critic to support her family. Prominent Hollywood actor John Wayne spotted her at a bull fighting event. At the time, Wayne didn’t even know that she was already an actress in her hometown.

But, Budd Boetticher did, and he cast her in his movie alongside Gilbert Roland in 1951. The film was entitled Bullfighter and the Lady, and her performance as the wife of an aging matador received a lot of praises. She didn’t know much English at the time, and would only memorize the lines phonetically so she could deliver a convincing performance.

This got her noticed by Stanley Kramer, one of the major producers in Hollywood. She was cast in the classic movie High Noon alongside Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper. Eventually, she had to learn to speak English in order to play the role, and did so by taking classes daily.  She also played a role in Arrowhead, which was released in 1953.

By 1959, she had several Hollywood credits to her name, and had worked on many major films and television plays. Some famous movies that she acted in include Trial, The Racers, the Dragon Wells Massacre, The Man from Rio, Trapeze, Broken Lance, and various others.

Jurado was also close friends with a certain Marlon Brando, who eventually invited her to take part in One-Eyed Jacks. She had met Ernest Borgnine in 1958, and the two married soon after, eventually starting their own production company.

In 1963 however, the two decided to end their marriage.  She returned back to Mexico and started living in Cuernavaca. A couple of years later, she would return to Hollywood to play a role in Smoky.

For a large part of her career, Jurado would continue alternating between Mexico and Hollywood. She shared a very close and romantic relationship with novelist Louis L’Amour, and stated in an interview that he had written her love letters until the last days of his life. For her contributions to Hollywood, she was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Towards the end of her career, she began suffering from health problems, primarily related to her lungs and her heart. Eventually, in 2002, after a long and successful career in both Mexican cinema and Hollywood, she passed away in her home in Cuernavaca due to pulmonary disease and kidney failure. She is widely regarded as one of the best actresses to come out of Mexico.

Can Fast and Furious Be a Hit Without The Rock?

Many people considered ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ to be boring, probably because there is no much interest in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise after the seventh installment. ‘Fast and Furious 8’ was released only two days before ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ and much to people’s surprise, it was better in many ways.

Besides the fact that ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ promised to become another classic buddy cop movie, it didn’t keep its promise. Instead, it looked like the main characters, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson were trying too hard to be funny and interesting. Moreover, the fight scene didn’t amaze many viewers, and the action looked very boring. Consequently, the opening weekend numbers were very tame, and it made roughly $60m. However, that’s not what is expected from a $200m movie.

Img source:

So, the ‘Fast and Furious’ fans were left wondering where does the franchise go from here. Many people have stated that the movie started their downfall the moment they began working to surpass their own ridiculous stunts. Even though the spin-off of the franchise did their best to enhance the plot of the movie, it doesn’t seem to be very successful.

It looks like we’ve seen it all from the franchise, including planes, tanks, and supercars through skyscrapers. The franchise doesn’t have anything new to offer, besides the crazy stunts, they’re trying to pull off. So, this led fans to believe that the series won’t last much longer. The fact that neither the Rock nor Statham will be part of Fast 9 only adds to this belief. However, many fans hope that ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ has the potential of becoming a very successful independent movie franchise.

Img source:

The Rock is held responsible for revitalizing the franchise, and it’s believed that this is the reason why he doesn’t get on well with Vin Diesel. This raised many questions, such as whether the franchise can be a hit without the Rock and whether or not the ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ spinoff can survive without the ‘Family’?

In a nutshell, the fact that Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham aren’t part of the main Fast series seems to have negative consequences for both franchises.

The Rock Promotes Samoan Culture in His New Movie


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most recognizable people in the world today. This forty-seven-year-old comes from a Samoan origin. Recently, he got an opportunity to present some of his cultures on the big screen. The Rock recently stated that was the key thing for him starring in a Fast and furious spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw”.

As you probably know, Dwayne Johnson will appear in “Hobbs & Shaw” alongside Jason Statham from the United Kingdom. These actors come from different cultures and invested their mentalities in this project. The Rock stated that culture was a key factor for this movie to be made, naturally, alongside chemistry between actors.


Johnson stated that Samoan culture didn’t have the opportunity to reach billion people around the globe, that it has with this movie. He stated that he is ecstatic to see something like that happening and that he is involved in this project. He will reprise the role of policeman Luke Hobbs, and Jason Statham will reprise his role of Deckard Shaw.

Today, Jason Statham lives in Los Angeles and he was very happy to return to the United Kingdom, to be a part of a large, blockbuster movie. He said that he loved working in the UK after a really large amount of time. The movie was filmed just outside the Leadenhall`s and Lloyd`s buildings. His character, Deckard Shaw is a typical representative of the people from the United Kingdom.


He drives a British-made, 720S McLaren, which was made in Surrey. He wears an old Saville Row suit, Cleverly shoes, and Budd shirt. The Brits are a majority in the cast of “Hobbs & Shaw”. Alongside Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, you will have the opportunity to see Helen Mirren, Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby, and the movie is going to be directed by David Leitch.

Is there anything bad you can say about Family Guy? If there is indeed something negatively related to it, it’s that you have a poor taste in humor. Family Guy started first in 1999, and it managed to survive for 18 seasons, despite people calling for the end after they get offended by a joke. Family Guy is a satire-comedy that keeps you wanting more. A cartoon that only The Simpsons and South Park rival in terms of entertainment, Family Guy follows a family in a wacky Rhode Island town. The family in question is not a normal one, seeing that they have a talking dog, an insecure daughter, a dumb son, and a genius baby boy who is often times the most mature person in the room, and evil. The parents, Louis and Peter Griffin are also quite out of the ordinary, with Louis being a traditional woman who tries to keep everything together, and Peter (the main protagonist) getting the family from one bad scenario to another. Family Guy is a must-watch series if you’re a fan of animation comedy.
