Godzilla… Chewbacca… Predator… Robby the Robot…

These are some of the most popular characters in fantastic cinema, but many people still don’t know about the incredible actors inside these creature suits who bring those characters to life!

MEN IN SUITS will examine the history and craft of suit performers from The Creature of the Black Lagoon to Pan’s Labyrinth and beyond. Through interviews with these actors we will learn the skill, strength and art required to be “under rubber”.

So far Wyrd has interviewed Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), Tom Woodruff Jr.(the Alien fims), John Alexander (Gorillas In The Mist, Men In Black), Van Snowden (H.R. Puffnstuff), Misty Rosas (Congo, Sid The Science Kid), Bobby Clark (Star Trek), Kurt Carley (Underworld), Douglas Tait (Knights of Badassdom), August Ragone (author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters), Todd Tucker, (Drac Studios), Alec Gillis (ADI Effects), William Malone (director, House on Haunted Hill), and Guillermo Del Toro (director, Pan’s Labyrinth). And this is just the beginning…

In late 2010 Wyrd will be making a journey to Tokyo where we will interview some of the pioneers of Japanese suit acting.

As the most comprehensive documentary of its kind, we still have a way to go but expect to wrap post sometime in the middle of 2011. Sign up for our newsletter and we’ll keep you informed as Men In Suits continues production!
