I’m Calum MacDonald and I run Gibbet FX which specialises in the creation of models, props and Special FX work for film, TV and theatre. I’ve been working in this field for the last 15 years having originally trained in stop-motion animation before venturing into the varied environs of SFX. It’s the appeal of creating the unusual and the weird and wonderful that drives me and I’ve had the pleasure of working for clients who want something “a little bit different”. Life-sized dinosaurs, huge gargoyles, trauma injuries – no two projects are ever the same!
I also felt that while learning my craft, there seemed to be a lack of training opportunities within this field particularly in Scotland, so I decided to start running training courses from my studio for those who had an interest in developing their skills in these particular areas.
The courses cover a wide range of different topics from Special FX makeup and prosthetics, sci-fi and fantasy prop and model making to creature design. Courses vary in length from 2 days – 6 days and are suitable for all levels of experience.
