US-based, world-renowned industry sculptor Don Lanning flew in from Los Angeles to teach an exclusive private four-day class to 12 students in the University’s SFX studio.

Don is one of the most in-demand sculptors working in film today. His work has been featured in more than 70 movies, including Star Trek BeyondBatman v SupermanOblivionStar Trek: Into DarknessThe AvengersPirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger TidesH2: Halloween 2Alien vs. Predator and Hellboy.

The hands-on ‘Sculpting Creatures and Characters Half Mask’ course focused on taking a life-size clay half-mask sculpture from start to completion.

Don gave step-by-step demonstrations and students created their own character sculpture with his coaching.

Lizzy Mosely, a third-year SFX student, said: “Don is really inspirational to work with. The course gave me so many new techniques, and I would love to have the opportunity to work with him again.”
