Discover the skills and processes involved in bringing a creature from the written page to the silver screen in this fascinating ‘behind the scenes’ exhibition.

How to Make a Monster features the work of John Cox, Academy Award winner for Visual Effects (for the movie Babe), and his company John Cox’s Creature Workshop. It reveals how monsters and creatures are designed and story-boarded, maquettes made and then how the full size creatures are sculpted, moulded, and finished. See how animatronic components are designed and installed to create the bones and muscles that bring monsters to life.

This exciting exhibition is suitable for curious minds and film buffs, as well as anyone wishing to pry into the world of producing movie creatures.
