HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS
Step into the world of witches and trolls…
To celebrate the May 21st Digital debut of HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS and the film’s upcoming arrival on Blu-ray and DVD on June 11th, journalists joined director Tommy Wirkola for a special visit to Spectral Motion, home of the wizards behind the creature and prosthetic makeup effects in the global hit.
Attendees met the film’s breakout character, Edward the Troll—a triumph of practical animatronics; experienced the lifecasting process undergone by cast members; brought an animatronic creature to life; and watched as an ordinary person was transformed into a gruesome witch.
Plus, director Tommy Wirkola, actor Derek Mears (Edward the Troll) and Academy Award nominee Mike Elizalde (Founder of Spectral Motion) gave behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the worldwide blockbuster.
One of the leading makeup and creature effects studios in the industry, Spectral Motion has created effects for films such as Pacific Rim, Looper, X-Men: Last Stand, Fantastic Four, Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army and many more.
