5 is Alive!!!

"Alive"      Mauro Balcazar 2013

Input!!!   Short Circuit is such an amazing movie to me. Not only does this movie have the best actor, Steve Guttenberg, but one of the BEST physical props ever built for any film. Everything you see Johnny 5 do in the film is real, they built a real functional robot and that magic is what made the movie so great for me. True, the prop robot wasn't really alive, but what was filmed still inspires me to till this day.

This is something I've had painted in my mind a few years ago but never felt I could capture it physically. A few days ago i scrounged up the courage to finally attempt this and I'm very happy with the outcome.
