How to Make a Monster

How to Make a Monster, the art and technology of animatronics is a touring exhibition showing how 'behind the scenes' movie magic is made.  Exhibits include detailed displays of the processes and inside workings of animatronics.

People of all ages will be fascinated to see how monsters and creatures are designed, storyboarded, maquettes made, then how the full size pieces are sculpted, moulded and finished.  They will see how animatronic components are designed and installed to create the bones and muscles that bring monsters to life.

Interactive exhibits will enable visitors to be an animatronics puppeteer!

How to Make a Monster, the art and technology of animatronics was created by John Cox's Creature Workshop.

John Cox has an impressive body of work spanning both feature films and TV series, including Narnia – Dawn Treader, Peter Pan and George of the Jungle 2.

He was won an Academy Award for Visual Effects in 1995 for the film Babe and is highly regarded in Queensland’s multi-million dollar film industry.
