Bob Burns is a Great Guy
I just got back from another fine evening at the San Diego Natural History Museum.
Bob Burns brought the Original King Kong armature to the screening of King Kong (1933)
A real treat to see Kong on the big screen. But an even bigger treat was to see, hold and pose the original
Kong and Mighty Joe Young Armatures. I was in armature geek heaven!
Bob was letting folks from the audience hold and even pose the armature.
Pretty damm cool if you ask me. Both armatures are build like a rock, they still move well today.
For such an early armature it is an amazing piece of engineering and machining.
If you have seen the behind the scene stuff for Peter Jackson's new King Kong
you may have seen Bob. He's a great guy with all kinds of great stories.
