This was when I working for Artem. I had to make a tiny mechanism to fit into a casting of a real lobster shell. The movement
was: eyes swivel and come out on stalks, antennae hinge and bubbles to blow from the mouth and the whole thing had to
be remotely operated at the bottom of an aquarium. For a TV advertisment for a building society.
