MONSTER MAKERS REUNITE


On October 11th, 2013, the world's greatest monster makers gathered in Burbank, CA for Eliot Brodsky's Son of Monsterpalooza. It was a killer convention, filled with Makeup FX demonstrations, monster mask displays and elaborate creature costumes. For those of you who were lucky enough to attend in person, it was great to see you! For those who weren't, not to worry, we were broadcasting live from the Stan Winston School booth all weekend long and you can check out the live replays by clicking on the videos below. It's the next best thing to being there.

Enjoy,

Matt Winston
