Willie’s legs test footage
From the failed “Warrior’s Destiny” trailer I was going to make while a student at Bloomsburg University. My friend and special effects technician Ben Estes was going to build a 1:6 scale animatronic Cearcorite (a mythical beast from WD). He affectionately named it “Willie” because the materials he had planned on using for the skin of the animatron were a kind of adult novelty toy. Say what you will, but the adult toy industry makes a lot of innovative products that can be used (safely) in filmmaking to produce cool special effects. Unfortunately, the trailer never came to fruition and to my knowledge, Willie’s legs no longer exist.
