AVG video posted

Post by GoldCylon » Tue May 05, 2009 2:35 pm

A few weeks ago I was invited to stop by and visit the animatronics company AVG when I was in LA. The owner Alvaro and David were great host. They showed me and my guest around the work area and their current projects. They also showed me the photos that they took when they were working on the Battle of Galactica set, and the original shop they used to built some of the set pieces. Alvaro gave me an old VHS video tape demo to convert to digital format. Here is the link to the video tape of some of their work.

Good work Dale! It is heartening to see this important phase of Galactica history is being preserved.

Interesting vintage demo video. I love the Cylons. Hey, they even got the voice done correctly. Thanks for posting!

Yes I was surprised how well the video was in detail of the Galactica section of the tape. It is a great find, and I hope to share more photos soon that I have seen.
