The man behind the Monsters

In this new blog feature we look to shed some light on those who helped create such iconic characters, games and movies at the very heart of modern day pop culture.

Phil Tippett is not a household name but you will know his work. The Oscar-winning stop-motion animator and designer is responsible for many fantasy creatures and sci-fi set pieces in cinema history. From creating aliens that defined the diversity of Star Wars, to seamlessly merging practical animation and CGI in Jurassic Park. ‘My Life in Monsters’, a VICE documentary, chronicles Tippett’s legendary life work and is a must watch!

 

 

Tippett has now returned to his origins and is currently involved with his ongoing “Mad God” stop-motion animation series, currently funded through Kickstarter.
