Lighting Effect and Motion Capture Suit for Billy Crudup while performing the Dr. Manhattan character in the Zack Snyder film "Watchmen"
In September of 2007 I got a call from Global Effects in North Hollywood to engineer a power and control system for the motion capture suit that they were making for Billy Crudup to wear in "Watchmen". They had dozens of feet of 3528 blue LED tape (new at the time, and about $150 per 16 foot roll!) and Global needed a battery supply, independent intensity adjustment of six zones on the suit, a battery level monitor, and a means of turning the suit on and off. From an earlier project for Warner Bros called "Ben 10: Race Against Time", I had hacked a remote control I got from All Electronics to turn a creature suit on & off, and it worked well so I repurposed it again for "Watchmen" and it was a great help.
