The Production Team
Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc.
Back



As Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc., a company specializing in special make-up and creature effects, our skills have been used extensively in creature design and construction, special make-up design and application, effects sequence designing and storyboarding, and second unit directing.

With over thirteen years of professional experience, we have been involved in all facets of production; from design and budgeting to supervising crews of up to 40 artists and technicians. We have designed and storyboarded the way an effect will be shot and coordinated creature effects throughout the puppeteers, but as the performers inside our elaborate costumes. We pride ourselves on bringing in a project on time and on budget.

Our work on Bob Zemeckis' film, DEATH BECOMES HER, was honored with an Academy Award, as well as the British Academy Award. Our work on ALIEN 3 was also nominated in the same category.
