I Am Mother: Creating the Robot Suit
13 June, 2019

Weta Workshop crew provide design and manufacturing for creative industries, TV, and films for over 20 years. They also made a special suit for the new sci-fi film – I Am Mother.

“A teenage girl is raised underground by a kindly robot “Mother” — designed to repopulate the earth following the extinction of mankind. But their unique bond is threatened when an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news.”

I Am Mother is the anticipated sci-fi film being streamed on Netflix now. Mother is not a prop, dummy or even a CGI character. It’s a sophisticated robot suit worn by a real actor. The suit made of more than 300 pieces including LED lights, animatronics, 3D printing, model-made elements takes 45-60 minutes to be put on a human.

The team already won 38 awards, 5 Oscars and 4 BAFTAs for their amazing work. One of their recent projects are: I Am Mother, Thor: Ragnarok, Blade Runner 2049, Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Here’s the sketches showing some prototypes Weta made creating the suit:
