Meccano + Cartoon Network

Custom Vignette

We created an original Cartoon Network talk show segment from scratch to bring audiences into the future with Meccano.

This custom “Tech Talk” vignette features a snarky young robot enthusiast as its host, talking up the latest and greatest toys to a group of tough critics… Meccanoid robots! We were tasked with making it feel like our talent was on stage in front of a live studio audience, but only had two Meccanoids to pull it off. So we got creative.

We programmed the robots with various actions using a combination of LIM recordings (Learned Intelligent Movement), smartphone-triggered animations, and voice commands, so that we could composite them together to build a bigger crowd. We also shot additional content of our host testing out the robots’ next-generation capabilities as well as the Meccanoid G15 on a custom-built lazy Susan to amplify the cutaway B-roll within the spot. We designed a custom graphics package that pays homage to the tongue-in-cheek tone of the green screen comedy genre with fun transitions and 3-D studio background.
