Great news! John Howard has kindly volunteered his time and expertise to help us redesign our robot costume. Previously our robot was a hack job of random parts, including shin pads, juicer parts and a plastic box all glued or strapped together. This started falling apart in our promo shoot for the campaign and after a while, more time was spent repairing the robot than filming; not to mention the costume was only fit for a contortionist. This is why we need John.

John is a professional special effects and make-up artist with several films under his belt, including Crackheads; which won 'best self-funded film' at the New Zealand Film Awards last year. He also has over 15 years of experience in fibreglass moulding. This means that our new robot costume will be durable, comfortable and even more awesome than ever before.
