When it comes to monster movies, for our money there’s no amount of CGI wizardry that can stack up to the classic usage of a man dressed up in a truly badass monster suit. With this in mind we are DELIGHTED to bring you your first look at the celebration of this artform, Men In Suits!
Directed by Frank H. Woodward (Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown) this incredible documentary features Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), Tom Woodruff Jr. (the Alien fims), Haruo Nakajima (Godzilla, Ultraman), Bob Burns (“The Ghost Busters,” Invasion of the Saucer Men), Brian Steele (Hellboy II, Predators), Douglas Tait (Zathura, Knights of Badassdom), John Alexander (Gorillas In The Mist, Men In Black), Van Snowden (H.R. Pufnstuff, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters), Misty Rosas (Congo, Sid The Science Kid), Michelan Sisti (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dinosaurs), Arturo Gil (Monkeybone, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey), Camden Toy (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Angel”), Bobby Clark (Star Trek), as well as August Ragone (author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters), Todd Tucker (Drac Studios), Alec Gillis (ADI Effects), William Malone (director, House on Haunted Hill), and Guillermo Del Toro (director, Pan’s Labyrinth).
Godzilla… Chewbacca… Predator… Robby the Robot… These are some of the most iconic characters in cinema, but many people still don’t know about the incredible actors who bring these creatures to life! MEN IN SUITS examines the role of suit actors, shining a long overdue light on a craft that is getting lost in this age of computer graphics.
