While there are shots so complicated that they require full CGI, many movies still try to make practical creatures that can interact with actors on set. For “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” creature effects designer Arjen Tuiten and his team were tasked with bringing the terror dog from the original “Ghostbusters” movie back to life. This required creating a 450-pound animatronic out of lifelike materials. They placed 21 motors in its face to allow for realistic expressions such as snarling, squinting, and breathing. Meanwhile, the team created a separate terror dog leg to terrify Paul Rudd in a close-up shot. And a more traditional, but no less complicated cable system allowed a skeleton puppet to actually pick up a coffee mug.
