Hi there. I'm new to posting here. I'm doing a pirate pub theme for my garage haunt this year. One side of the garage is a pirate ship stage for 6 skeletal pirate singers. Here's the model I built of the stage:

Here's some pics of the progress from last week.

Here's a vidio of the skull test I did for one of the singers.

I'm painting the stage today. I'll post more pics later.

Absolutely amazing! LOVE the stage!

Got any plans/steps for making a skull not only talk, but also move like that?
Thanks, JohnnyL!
No plans, I'm making this up as I go along! The head has 3 servos in it. I wrote the software that controls it. It saves the positions of the mouse or joystick real time and converts it to servo instructions. It's pretty much like operating a puppet. After it records the motions, you can play it back or export it into VSA(http://www.brookshiresoftware.com/vsa_overview.htm). Here's a screen shot.

It captures X, Y, and Z axis and microphone input for the lip synching.
