Animatronic Heart

LAL music video
Produced by 90 Second Films.
Directed by Jeff Bai.
Video for Brown Eyed Warrior taken from the LAL album "Warm Belly High Power".

These 3 Autonomous Animatronic Hearts that pumped blood were created for a band called LAL for their music video 'Brown Eyed Warrior'. They really did squirt blood and it ended up amusing more people than it pissed off.
I sculpted the originals in clay, took a plaster mold, then cast 3 latex hearts and painted them. The electronics were super simple: a powerade bottle for the 'blood', some tubes, and then a liquid pump activated by a large push button.
