The Painulator was a fully customized prop for
The Adventures of Dash Cloudrider: In Galdar’s Grip (coming 2019).
Some features of the Painulator include:
• moving parts, including functional claws via a spring-activated lever handle,
and battery-operated spinning fangs
• internal lights to create glow behind front fangs and glowing “eyes” at rear/top
More detailed photos coming soon, but for now see it in the above screenshots from the film as well as some photos taken on set.
I wanted to create something creepy with a blend of organic and old tech, with a grabbing visual impact that would compliment the caricature of its owner while adding to her character.
