Myself and Allen Wixted were the 'Spider Operators' on the 2018 show Nightflyers which was on aired on SYFY and Netflix. The show was filmed in Troy Studios in Limerick in Ireland. Nightflyers was the first book by 'Game of Thrones' creator George R. R. Martin. This series is an adaptation of that. It was quite a visually stunning show and a fun experience to be a part of.
The killer robot was mechanically operated and ran off of Arduino in which we had to manipulate the code for it. Throughout the shoot day the code had to be swapped to alter the movement patterns of the robot itself. It was operated with a wireless controller.
