It was Rihanna's birthday the day before the shoot and she had a big night out in London ending way after our 7am call the following morning. She rolled onto set at 9pm very hungover and very apologetic. When I was strapping her into the operating table she leant towards me and said, "I'm all yours. Do what you whatever you want to do......just make sure your hands are warm". Ahem. The chest clamps proved a little too revealing so we whipped up a Blue Peter modification - black island studio's finest polystyrene desert bowls sprayed black.

 

Artem moulded and cast the face mask, chrome head and built the mechanical robotic arms to deliver the R microchips.
