These manikins are 100% bespoke with the quality being so high they can be performers in their own right.They can even have an animatronic head. This allows you to create dramatic and dangerous scenes without putting any of your cast or stunt performers at risk.

Used recently on Hobbs & Shaw - successfully replacing lead artists and changing the concept of traditional foam and wire 'stunt dummies' –S.A.Ms are definitely not your average prop. 


Bespoke Manikins are highly effective in the Previsulisation arena, providing a perfect solution to visualise complete scenes before the shooting starts.  Bespoke Manikins can also realistically link frame capture from live action to visual effects providing a connection for a sequence. 


We provide a full Manikin service, this means that we are with the Manikin from the very beginning right to the very last shot.


From our workshop we will tailor the Manikin to your requirements. We travel with the Manikin, dress the Manikin and operate the Manikin. This means that you get to shoot your scenes in the shortest time as we are on location to facilitate any repairs if they arise.
