The Insecurity Guard from A.I. Artificial Intelligence

by Kenny Hoeschen

The Stan Winston School and Creature Effects mechanic Eric Fiedler the animatronic “Insecurity Guard” from the 2001 film A.I. Artificial Intelligence. The guard’s face was modeled after Stan Winston himself, which involved multiple approaches. As Fiedler explains, “The Insecurity Guard was primarily a kinetic rod puppet where all the joints articulated like normal human joints. It had a cable-operated neck. The head was silicone. The armature for the body was aluminum rods, bearings, torsion springs, all nicely machined.”

It took six people to operated the robot during filming and the crew was “buried alive” under the set while they were animated the guard.
