Animator's take on Dream Machines

There are some conflicts between the two brothers, one is more the 'dreamer' and the other is more the guy who actually has to build it and bear in mind the limits and functionality of real-world materials and vehicles. I'm an animator/designer and I find the whole process from concept to fabrication fascinating. Things get a little 'salty' as one commentator states, but anybody who has been in any sort of machine/automotive shop with a bunch of men knows that this is reality, guys joke and cuss. I have not heard anything offensive at all. What makes me laugh and watch to the last moment is the expectations of some of the customers - what they conceive of can very likely be built - but the time limits imposed are often quite short of what should be required to build and test. But you know, these guys manage it! Now, if I can only find what the name is of that tablet-computer they use to map out the concepts!!!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
