Tricky Guy is Andrew Verhoeven.  I have been designing and building special effects for film and television since 1995.

Tricky Guy Special Effects specializes in automated machines – repeatable control of hydraulic and electric servo systems.  I design and execute the entire scope of these projects;   the initial concepts developed into CAD models,  electronic control systems, mechanical construction and operation.

Occasionally working outside of film, I have collaborated on large scale art installations, entertainment facilities, manufacturing and prototyping.

An inventory of 6 DOF gimbals /motion bases, Stewart platforms and manipulators is available to simulate your next spaceship, car ride, plane crash, earthquake or sinking ship. You can know more about his work on this website.
