TERMINATOR 2'S T-1000: THE "SPLASH HEAD" EFFECT. #Terminator2 : Judgment Day brought new #Terminator #SpecialEffects challenges to Stan Winston Studio including the #FX for the #T1000 played by Robert Patrick @ripfighter. Studio artists sculpted Robert Patrick in #clay , then split that clay #sculpture down the middle and pulled it open, sculpting a ‘splash’ area into the middle of it. The foam rubber puppet was then made from molds of that sculpture. The puppet had a hinged fiberglass core that would spring open with the pulling of a single pin. The frontal view of ‘splash head’ required a more detailed puppet that featured eye mechanisms working independently on either side of the T-1000’s split face. Pulley mechanisms pulled the sides of the head toward the middle to suggest the beginning of the healing effect, which was finished off with ILM’s computer graphics. In this #behindthescenes #video you can see a test #footage about the T-1000 Splash Head Effect at #StanWinstonStudio .
