Adam meets the titular character from the new film 'I Am Mother', and surprisingly, this robot is actually an incredible practical costume fabricated by Weta Workshop. Luke Hawker, the lead on the build who also performed as Mother, shows us how this complex suit works and what it takes to transform into a mechanical character.

Low budget ? No cgi ? The robot isn't even a robot it's a human in there ? Completely blown away, they deserve so many awards for this, and he deserves so many awards for his amazing acting !

me: That robot wasn't animated? But the babies, the babies had to be CGI though yeah?
morpheus: what is real? If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

Best robot suit ever made. Even knowing he's in there it still feels like a real machine.

Adam seems to spend so much time here in NZ, he's almost part of the furniture.

Very enjoyable video Adam. I have been a fan of yours for a long time. It is great to see your still at it. I hope that the freedom of not being connected to the for profit media machine has made it better for you. Please keep it up.

I seen the movie and I am glad I watched this, I wondered if there was a human in the robot because the movements were so smooth.

Easily the most impressive piece of practical effects I've seen in my entire life, coming from a movie that blew my mind.

This movie reminds me of a slightly more creepy/adult take on "The Search for Wondla" by Tony DiTerlizzi
