Nigel Stanford & Robot Animator®

I needed my robots to play the music in a time accurate manner, but also wanted to give them movements that resembled human musicians - with flair and character.

I quickly discovered that only Robot Animator software enabled me to create all of the robot motions, and it ended up being perfect for the job.

Thanks Robot Animator!
