From the makeup and prostheses created by the brilliant Jack Pierce for the Monster played by Boris Karlo in Frankenstein in 1931 to the computer-generated images used in today’s blockbusters, special-e ects techniques have evolved in spectacular fashion. Whether with the help of computers or paintbrushes, the people responsible for designing creatures for movie productions possess near divine powers of invention, and they also have a surprising relationship with their creations. Through interviews with directors like Guillermo Del Toro, John Landis and Joe Dante, as well as special-e ects artists as renowned as Rick Baker or Greg Nicotero, this documentary provides testimonies spiced with a wealth of anecdotes and personal secrets.
