Who is M3GAN?

Model 3 Generative Android is referred to as M3GAN. Her name is pronounced in the movie the American way, making it rhyme with beggin’ rather than vegan. It remains to be seen whether the movie will generate more buzz than its trailer. It says some interesting things regarding the dangers of artificial intelligence from a philosophical perspective. More primitively, it draws on the creepy doll concept, which has been terrifying audiences since the invention of film.

It’s difficult to contest the fact that scary dolls are a profitable venture, regardless of whether you’re into them yourself. Six sequels, a spin-off TV series, and a full-fledged 2019 remake of the 1988 movie Child’s Play, which starred the homicidal doll Chucky, have all been produced since. This remake may likely lead to more sequels.

“Let’s hope she’s still alive”

It was up to the Oscar-nominated Adrien Morot and Kathy Tse of Montreal’s Morot FX Studios to establish that M3GAN could be created before she could be represented on screen. Additional concepts for the movie, whose production is said to have cost $12 million, came from WETA Workshop. Johnstone said, “[Morot] built a real doll, but everyone believes it’s CGI.” The budget would have been doubled by that.

Due to the pandemic, which prompted production to move from Canada to New Zealand, they worked on many continents, creating 2-D drawings, 3-D renderings, and molding full-sized M3GANs. The character changed from a “Tim Burton-y” brunette to the “Barbie come to life” icy blond and blue-eyed creature seen in the movie.

Johnstone, who alternated between several life-sized M3GANs throughout the shoot, including animatronic, puppet, posable, and stunt M3GANs as well as Donald, who performed her scenes while wearing a prosthetic M3GAN mask, said, “We didn’t get a chance to R&D with her, so we were figuring it all out on set.” “It was weird. I was attached to the front of what seemed like a mad train.

What is it about dolls that creep us out?

The Uncanny, a 1919 article by Sigmund Freud, explored this issue. Freud used “the impressions created on us by waxwork figures, ingeniously constructed dolls, and automata” as a standard example of uncanniness. According to Freud, we are unnerved by these “apparently animate” items because we can’t be certain they aren’t alive.

Freud was particularly interested in dolls because they dealt with his specialty: infantile yearning. He noted that kids “do not distinguish clearly between the alive and the inanimate.”

They “aren’t scared of their dolls coming to life. They might welcome it.”

However, they would need VFX to match their various M3GANs because they had to work with six different versions of the character using various techniques.
