How To Make A Monster

Mar 24, 2016  ·  2 min read

By Stephanie Manning.

Get your geek on. Head over the Gold Coast City Gallery to learn about, watch, make and sculpt every type of monster out there. There’s a heap of programs inspired by the latest exhibition How to Make a Monster: the art and technology of animatronics, and it opens this Easter long weekend. We’re talking about monster and creature FX themed workshops, master classes, after-hour tours, expert panels, movie marathons and more. MONSTERS.

Meet all kinds of movie monsters and get behind-the-scenes access to Visual Effects Academy Award Winner and Gold Coast resident John Cox’s Creature Workshop. Play with real animatronic mermaids, snowmen, gorillas, aliens, animals and more from sweet films like Pitch Black, Inspector Gadget 2, Scooby Doo, Peter Pan, Nim’s Island and Babe! Learn how fantasy creatures are created from the page to full size inventions. Become an animatronics puppeteer, a lighting technician or a creature designer. HOW GOOD.

Our QT pick is John Cox’s Creature Workshop – the interactive display gives audiences an up-close look at the art of creating monsters for the movies and an insight into John Cox’s 35 plus years of expertise in the visual effects industry. For those who froth on monsters, it doesn’t get much better than this.

There is so much to do and experience during the exhibition for all skill and geek levels. This is your only chance to enjoy this one-of-a-kind, international blockbuster exhibition where art and science collide. Get your monster on with How to Make a Monster: the art and technology of animatronics when it takes over all three exhibition levels with a monster load of public programs at Gold Coast City Gallery.

How to Make a Monster: the art and technology of animatronics runs from March 25 til June 12.
