Stan Winston’s Island of Dr. Moreau
Stan Winston sent his make-up crew to the jungles of Australia to bring H. G. Wells’ novel to life. Wells had no idea when he wrote his novel the challenges he was creating for make-up artists in generations to come. Shane Mahan, a 14-year veteran of Stan Winston Studios and Michael Smithson, were delegated the responsibility of over-seeing the design and application of the make-ups for Island of Dr. Moreau. Join MAas they share with us how they dealt with these challenges, as well as the sweltering heat, to create the look for generation’s Island.
Also featured in this issue are some of the drawings and paintings of the 1977 version of The Island of Dr. Moreau never published before this issue of MA.
