Learn how to make foam fabricated monster suits amp; creature costumes with Hollywood's most sought-after FX fabricators, Bill Bryan (Ghostbusters, Army of Darkness, Men in Black) amp; Ted Haines (Blade 2, The Muppets, Cowboys amp; Aliens).
In part 1 of this gargantuan 5-part webcourse series, Bryan, Haines amp; their student teams begin the process of bringing two Kaiju monster suits to life, including design review, head patterning and carving, tips on creating teeth, nails and horns, and suit prototyping techniques!
Bill Bryan was born in Newport News Va, 1954. The middle child of 7, he grew up in Bedford Mass, making art and music from an early age. Inspired by Jim Henson and the Muppets, he started building and performing puppet shows while in High School.
At Syracuse University, earning a BFA in Metalsmithing, he was told by the Lost-In-Space Robot to Go west, young man , so he hitch-hiked and hopped freights to arrive in Los Angeles in July 1976. Within two weeks he was building a banana costume for Elton John s tour, and he s been working steadily ever since. Five years at NBC Wardrobe Department prepared him for the hectic pace of the movie effects industry
After leaving NBC in 1981, a short term at Sid and Marty Krofft s shop led him to Mark Siegel which landed him the job of designing and constructing the stillsuits for DUNE.
After that, he was offered the task of fabricating and portraying the Staypuft Marshmallow Man in GHOSTBUSTERS at Richard Edlund s Boss Films.
There Bill met and befriended fellow department heads, Randy Cook and Steve Johnson, who each eventually employed him at their respective FX houses, Ruckus Inc. for 3 years and Edge FX. for over 15 years, where Bill might be foam fabricating on one job, then inventing a new art form on another, designing and constructing at the beginning of a job, and supervising and puppeteering at the end of the job.
Bill spent most of a year working for Stan Winston on AI and JURASSIC PARK 3
Characters with which he has been associated include:
Mr. Staypuft, SIL, The Pit Bitch, Doc Ock, Andrew Martin, Captain Eo, Teddy Ruxpin, King Kong, Chucky, Rex, The Ninja Turtles, The Puttermans, The Energizer Bunny, The Shit Weasel, the Cat in the Hat, and The StubHub Ticket Oak, among others.
Throughout this career, Bill has experienced the joy of fatherhood, raising a daughter and three sons, and now, a grandson and granddaughter!
Ted Haines was born, far from Hollywood, in a small town in Wisconsin. He spent his early years, like most young Wisconsinites, eating cheese curds and bratwurst, shoveling snow and cheering on the Green Bay Packers. In 1977, Ted was only nine years old when his future was set -- Star Wars opened and changed him forever. From that point on Ted ate, slept, breathed everything film, monsters and model building. A determination to make a living in Hollywood led to a childhood spent cutting up couches for foam material and nearly burning down his ancestral home.
Not long after graduating high school Ted took the leap and drove the two thousand plus miles to Los Angeles. He quickly landed a job with John Buechler's MMI studios. Later, showing his portfolio to Alan Scott at Stan Winston Studio, Alan declared, "Why, you're a foam fabricator!" Ted didn't know there was a term for what he did. He was simply making creatures the only way he knew how. Ted has since worked at well over two dozen shops including 5 years at the KNB EFX Group, 6 years with Steve Johnson's Edge FX and 9 years with Stan Winston Studio amp; Legacy FX.
Ted Haines has now been professionally creating special creatures, costumes and props for nearly 25 years and has worked on well over 300 films, television shows, commercials and music videos. Some of his projects include: THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PULP FICTION, CAT IN THE HAT, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN, WYATT EARP, JINGLE ALL THE WAY, WAR OF THE WORLDS, ZATHURA, IRONMAN, 300, SCREAM (1 - 3), BLADE 2, SPIDER-MAN 2, THE VILLAGE and WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE to name only a few.
Though Ted likes the glory of seeing his name in the credits of feature films in theaters, he prefers the constant challenge and creativity of commercial work.
Ted continues to love what he dreamt of doing when he was just a nine-year old kid and he sees no end in sight.
