Behind the Scenes of Weta Workshop's Boston Dynamics: New Robots Now Fight 1 day ago   24:31

Adam Savage’s Tested
Adam meets the titular character from the new film 'I Am Mother', and surprisingly, this robot is actually an incredible practical costume fabricated by Weta Workshop. Luke Hawker, the lead on the build who also performed as Mother, shows us how this complex suit works and what it takes to transform into a mechanical character.

Watch 'I Am Mother' on Netflix at

I just thought the suit was well-done CGI. Even cooler that it was a suit.
I was really hoping the actor would break character for a moment and show us the full range of motion of the suit and just show us exactly what non-roboting movement would look like in the suit

the best of movie
Now release full version of this movie, beacuse Netflix version is cut as fuck. And yes, it is clear.
ElDuderino The last
Fantastic costume. Also, I think the tall head and the color pattern (alternating long strips of white and black sections instead of solid blocks) are deliberate choices. They help enhance the illusion that the robot is "thinner" than it actually is.
I actually just watched the movie tonight after putting it off for weeks. superb job, best Netflix movie so far. even tho I guessed the robot suit early on it did not at all take away from the movie, it actually helped make the movie feel more realistic. very cool!
Hi, question about the movements.

Is the actor Luke who is making those insane good robotic movements? Or is it (partly) because of the suit that has limitations that makes those moves (easier?).

I saw the movie and when they get to the beach I was instantly like “that’s New Zealand, no doubt about it” but I did actually doubt about it hahaha fuck brooo I didn’t know either that it was a low budget movie nor a suit, I genuinely thought it was a robot or top notch CGI. Damn it!!! This movie just got waaay better just knowing this.

Whaaat? There was a guy inside? The movements look so precise and just so robotic! Great job both engineering-wise and actor-wise.

If the human race dies ... I have no regrets having mother take charge and help humans repopulate 😉
