Some of the UK’s top prop-making and movie Special FX artists will customise unique designs of Frankenstein’s Monster to raise money for Make-A-Wish UK.
Frankenstein’s Monster as you have never seen him before!
28 of the UK’s top prop-making, sculpting and SPFX make-up artists have been brought together to take part in a unique charity project.
Each artist has been given a bespoke Frankenstein-inspired monster bust, created and supplied by SVFX University of Bolton Special & Visual Effects team, with the simple instruction: Customise him into any design you like.
Once completed, the artists will then donate the finished busts back to Make-A-Wish UK, who will then auction off the busts via their online worldwide auction site.
All the artists and the back room project crew donate their time and skills totally free of charge and 100% of the proceeds raised will go to Make-A-Wish UK.
Last year the same project team raised a staggering £28,000 for Make-A-Wish at Star Wars Celebration London with a similar project featuring an iconic Star Wars Helmet. 30 artists took part creating such custom designs as Deadpool, Judge Dredd, Batman and a Studio Ghibli inspired design.
The busts will be going on a UK tour during 2017 taking in such conventions across the country, finishing the year at Birmingham Horror Con where many of the featured artists can be seen sharing their work and will also be available for a chat.
In addition to the above conventions, people will be able to start viewing the completed busts from May 2017 via various social media outlets.
The auction goes live on Novemebr 3rd 2017, ending November 12th 2017 and can be found here:
