Any thing new? Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 8:18 am Jesussaves – Um… Stan's been gone for four years. Til the day he died, his company was churning away at little shows like Avatar and ALL the Iron Man Films to name a few and about 100 commercials a year. Since his passing, the studio, now taken over by his four top artists and renamed Legacy Effects, has been working on tiny web series like Real Steel, the NEXT Iron Man, Robocop, the Life of Pi and about 100 commercials a year. How about YOU? This is fun! And Merry Christmas! Reply Fourth Movement Productions says: December 25, 2012 at 8:52 am I kinda of think this would be cool if you could do some DIY tutorials for those young filmmakers like me, who want to become better with FX and making movies. maybe showing us how the pros do it then how we could do it Reply Arick Szymecki says: December 25, 2012 at 10:34 am that's what the school is for. this video is essentially a teaser for just one of the courses available at the site. personally i subscribe monthly to it and it's worth every cent, even for someone like me already doing fx work for films.

Reply cos.n.fx says: December 25, 2012 at 3:44 pm i do alot of armor and costumes and think this is great for someone just learning how to paint their armor. i have seen alot of different techniques for painting this kinda stuff but i love the look from using what looked like a finger nail file and wet paint. i go easy and use large paint brush just dry brushing it all Reply TheShadowedOne1 says: December 25, 2012 at 3:53 pm More BTS of Predator!

Reply KHRONIIKZ says: December 25, 2012 at 5:44 pm Hi there, do you have any tips for getting a metal effect when your base colour isnt black or sliver ? Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 6:21 pm BENewWorld~ Not sure what's different about what your asking for and what we're DOING! Have you been to the link at the top of the description? We have 150 hours of tutorials to help young filmmakers and Creature Effects Artists to DO IT! They're ALL DIY and they're ALL ONLINE. Gotta go to our school and then let me know what ewe can do to improve THAT experience. Maybe even tell us how to make it clearer that we're already doing what you want! Best~ John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 6:24 pm Khroniikz~ I'll pass this onto Jamie. I know we plan to do another lesson on metallic color effects. You may need to stay tuned! – John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 6:25 pm Pred! We're HOT ON HIS TAIL on that… he may need a BIT more encouragement… but that's what 2013 is all ABOUT! – John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 6:27 pm Arick~ Thanks for the support. It warms our hearts to hear that Pros and Enthusiasts are finding what they need at the school. You KNOW we have a TON of great stuff coming. I hope you stay with us because this year is going to come with some mind-blowing material. KEEP ON MAKING MONSTERS! – John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 6:28 pm ka5p3r~ A perfectly valid technique. Of course… This one blew my mind. Jamie is a true pro. – John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 25, 2012 at 6:29 pm TheShadowed~ Tons more of both on the way. Also… The other movies haven't even been TOUCHED. We have so much coming. – john Reply KHRONIIKZ says: December 25, 2012 at 6:51 pm Thank you very much John 😀 Reply cos.n.fx says: December 25, 2012 at 7:35 pm i really love how you guys take the time to respond to posts and comments here on you tube and answer questions from member and viewers at the SWS. there are still two vids im waiting on the second half of but can wait because i know there are hours of film.

Gonna have to try these out now.:) thanks for the help Reply predator666pain666 says: December 25, 2012 at 7:59 pm thats made my christmas… time to harass steve on facebook now Reply Dreadnaught396 says: December 25, 2012 at 9:57 pm I'm pretty much sold on getting a subscription with the school, however I'm wondering..is there already a lesson on how to make things like that helmet from scratch? I would be an absolute beginner to this sort of thing but special effects has always been a HUGE interest of mine. Reply sickphyschotic says: December 25, 2012 at 10:29 pm This is awesome. I got a movie FX DVD with Jordu schell sculpting Demos AND a new youtube video From you guysfor Christmas. thanks for the cool videos, I always enjoy 'em! Reply TheShadowedOne1 says: December 26, 2012 at 12:33 am Thanks! Reply Alexander Komerdelj says: December 26, 2012 at 1:44 am I was just wondering if there was a more in-depth version of this lesson. Though I love it, I hardly learned anything. Do I have to buy a DVD or enroll in the school to get the information? Reply Mike De La Mater says: December 26, 2012 at 6:52 am I missed the tutorial, just got the intro. Where is the actual video at? Reply Fourth Movement Productions says: December 26, 2012 at 7:56 am oh sorry I thought this was manly online. I did know you guys are an actual FX studio doing movies I thought you guys were just doing behind the scenes stuff on youtube I didn't know there were classes you could take. Thanks for the clearing it up. Reply TheCatThatWasMan says: December 26, 2012 at 6:38 pm Love the video posts, the work you have done, and the passion you all have to deliver the treasure from your vaults of awesomeness, where magic truly dwells. The artists and craftsman there are fx wizards, and I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves. Merry Christmas to all of you! Thanks for putting in the time and effort to bring the goodies out so all of us can marvel! It's just what We wanted!

Please tell your friends! -John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 28, 2012 at 10:00 pm TheCat~ Whoa. We're touched. Listen, if it weren't so fun to give it, we wouldn't be. So just keep coming back. Tell your friends. Share these things with kids. Let's build the next generation of Monster Fanatics… together. You guys are the best fans in the world. – John Reply Stan Winston School says: December 28, 2012 at 10:04 pm Alexander~ Well, yes. You have to do one of those things… OR you can purchase the STREAM for and that stream is your to watch as long as you're registered as a free user on our site. That's the key, though. You gotta go to our site to see the full lesson. This is one of our shorter lessons and it's an hour and a half long. From one of the dudes that paints the robots in the big movies that you watch. This is the real $&%#. The URL is above in the description. Tell us what ya think. – John Reply Stan Winston School says: January 6, 2013 at 12:56 am DeathZone~ Jamie admits that in this short lesson, he's jamming through a quick set of lenses as a placeholder. Of COURSE he's planning a set of proper lenses for any display piece. He wanted a complete look for you guys and we gave him 10 minutes! They cost about 50 cents and I think they're pretty darned effective. No? -John Reply Stan Winston School says: January 6, 2013 at 12:57 am Mike! I thought I responded. The link is embedded in the description video above. The lesson is on our site. It's awesome. -John Reply Habu12 says: January 6, 2013 at 4:22 am Using the venerable Alclad II I see. I've been a model builder for over 33 years, and I've used Alclad for the last 12 years. Before that it was Testors Model Master Metalizer. But Alclad is far more robust, and the chrome-like colors are the shiniest I've ever used. Great for bare metal finish aircraft. And Paasche H, can't beat that 80+ year old design! Reply Farhan Azam says: January 19, 2013 at 3:50 pm you guyx are really awesome… we just sit at home and watch the movie with food aside….but you devote yourself to such huge project.. i even cant imagine it….. Reply Farhan Azam says: January 19, 2013 at 3:51 pm plz continue uploading new videos….itx been feel good to watch you guyx handling that huge and skillful project… Reply Farhan Azam says: January 19, 2013 at 3:54 pm i m not getting an option to share it…..whenever it will get!! i share it…….love your work……!! 🙂 Reply Swidhelm says: March 21, 2013 at 12:04 pm In the first movie they weren't mesh. We didn't see that until Predator 2.

Reply twistedmisery666 says: August 29, 2013 at 2:23 pm Nice Reply Sean B. says: September 9, 2013 at 2:50 am So to get the tutorial. I have to buy the dvd. shame I could really use this right now. but I can not afford the DVD at the moment. tease… Reply Stan Winston School says: September 9, 2013 at 4:55 am Sean, you can buy the DVD or stream it alone ($20) as part of a Stan Winston School subscription. If you choose to subscribe, you can do it for as little as $20 a month for a limited number of videos per month. AND there's a 3-day free trial. Really we do try to make this affordable. – David Reply Sean B. says: September 9, 2013 at 8:41 am I apologize.that is affordable.just saving money rite now for props to paint.and I may get a dvd in the near future. can you say how long and detailed the dvd is. Reply Stan Winston School says: September 9, 2013 at 9:33 pm Hey Sean, The DVD is highly detailed and runs roughly one hour and twenty minutes. -Matt Reply Sebastian Galvan says: September 15, 2013 at 2:58 am It is realy good Reply calabiyou says: October 6, 2013 at 4:12 am that's awesome. i wish he wore safety gloves though and a respirator, for health… health and safety's real people! 🙂 Reply Stan Winston School says: October 14, 2013 at 11:06 pm calabiyou, You are absolutely right. That's why Jamie conducted the entire lesson in an industrial grade ventilation booth. Safety is of premium importance in Creature FX. -Matt Reply Mudux says: October 14, 2013 at 11:32 pm do you know what "PREVIEW" means? Reply Thierry Wybauw says: November 6, 2013 at 1:13 am I do indeed understand you have to trick in people to become paying members so you could earn a buck… Warming up and then… nadda zilch till you pay. Yeaa i do understand the definition of preview in this case. Reply Mudux says: November 6, 2013 at 10:03 am It might be a strange concept to you, but some people do work, and they require money to do so. Weird how the world is, eh? Reply M81 says: November 19, 2013 at 8:54 am Want to buy an unpainted mask so bad.Only real 1:1 scale masks from the world of the internet suck. Reply Stan Winston School says: November 19, 2013 at 11:54 pm Check out the Predator prop builder's forum, The Hunter's Lair: http://bit.ly/1dOtTJO @basic101101. You might find what you're looking for. -Matt Reply bowser515 says: November 30, 2013 at 2:18 pm Nice video, I think I'll buy this one. Can we get hold of those castings from the actual mask anywhere? Also, SWS, is it true that you found a hero P2 bio a while back and they are no longer lost? I would love to have an accurate P2 hero mask one day, Love that design. Many thanks. Reply Thierry Wybauw says: December 4, 2013 at 2:38 am @ Reaction towards Mudux, whatever mate, do you know me? Otherwise where do you get that statement and i quote "It might be a strange concept to you, but some people do work, and they require money to do so. Weird how the world is, eh?" guess not so your argument is BS… maybe different countries is the problem here or do you have a department of your school somewhere around in Belgium… think before you make dumbass statements! Reply DukeStarbuckle says: December 15, 2013 at 4:21 am Hey Stan, Nice try. I'm not paying you anything. You said that I would get unlimited access after subscribing. I think you owe me some videos and an apology for being a dirtbag. I hope your money brings you all the happiness you can handle.
