Sea of Monster Animatronic Head by Amalgamated Dynamics

The artists over at Amalgamated Dynamics are just rock stars! The detail and fidelity of the face motion is fantastic!

'Before we take an animatronic on set, we give it as much testing as possible. In the case of Polyphemus from PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS, we recorded our own in-house dialog from the script and pre-programmed the lip sync. By the time we shot, the script had changed. Much of the character's dialogue and action would not be settled on until post-production. The result is a heavily digital character. Here's our version.'
