The Kernerworks team has a long history of solving complex and time sensitive problems for some of the most successful and demanding film productions in history. Today, our team uses their decades of experience to solve complex problems for the military, government agencies and private sector clients. Research and Development has become core to our business model.
Our team has spent decades designing and building unique items and devices for the demanding realities of the visual effects industry. These experiences have taught our team just about everything there is to know about the fabrication of unique or new items. We have a very solid understanding of a wide variety of materials, animatronics, electronics, metal work and we are never constrained by what others consider impossible. We approach Research and Development with a way-out-of-the-box mentality.
Research and Development generally falls into two categories; new product development and new technological advancement. At Kernerworks we do both.
New Product and Advanced Prototype Development
Technological Advancement and Problem Solving
Blockbuster movies often anticipate real life challenges and scenarios. Today, we work to solve a variety of real-world problems including the development of complex surveillance and delivery systems. Much of the work that we do in this area is military or intelligence related and, therefore, sensitive in nature; case studies can only be shared under certain conditions.
We also take on a variety of marketing or ‘publicity stunt’ projects. Perhaps the best example of this is the giant Mythbusters paintball gun that members our our team worked on at Kerner Optical.
