Ghost in the shell’s robot geishas


Adam Savage recently visited Weta Workshop to see how they made the incredible geisha robots in the upcoming movie Ghost in the Shell.

Creating the geisha characters through animatronics, instead of using sophisticated 3D software, sounds like a lot of extra work—especially when you consider Weta needed an entire support team on set to ensure each mask worked perfectly during filming. But by combining both traditional and modern visual effects techniques, Ghost in the Shell’s robot geishas were brought to life with a perfect mix of beauty and total creepiness.
