Litigation support by an animatronics specialist could include expert report, expert opinion, and testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, counsel may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience.

In addition, clients may seek an industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.

Though animatronic figures have been around for decades, classic movies like Jurassic Park and Star Wars are ground breaking examples of modern animatronics. Amusement parks have used animatronic characters for years. These characters – dinosaur, elephant, robotic pets, Halloween zombie, zoo animals – come to life thanks to animatronics and the experts that create them. Animatronics integrates puppetry, anatomy and mechatronics, and these special effects figures can be controlled by computers and humans. A motion sensor can trigger movement by an animatronic creature, and this type of technology is often found at a theme park.

Often, matters requiring animatronic technology expert witness services involve copyright, patent infringement, trade secret disputes, and forensic animation.
