The Audio-Animatronics figures created by Disney in the 1960s are among the best and most life-like. This image, of the boy in the Carousel of Progress show, always causes my jaw to drop. He's veeeery real, and only in close-up shots like this can you detect any artifice. Created almost half a century ago, these figures by Walt Disney's talented artisans are still the "state of the art" in my opinion.
Long-time Disney designer, now a self-employed art director, illustrator, writer, sculptor, and maker of things. Inconveniently enamored with outdated technology, and pretty much every kind of cultural aspect of the American early 1960s. Will pay big bucks to the guy who produces a plausible time machine.
