John Brown

Character / Creature Designer Sculptor

With over forty film and television credits, John Brown’s skills as a sculptor placed him in the top live-action special make-up FX houses in Hollywood. Credits include Alien Resurrection, Species 2, George of the Jungle, Jumanji, X-Files, Mars Attacks, Bless The Child, Monkeybone, The Cell, Spy Kids, Scary Movie 2, Planet of the Apes and a host of others. John is also a bronze figurative artist whose sculptures reside in private collections throughout the United States.

  • "I have had the great fortune and enjoyment of watching John Brown’s exceptional tutorial series on sculpting the human figure and head. John draws from a traditional approach where he has an incredible indepth understanding of the Bridgeman philosophy. His tutorials are succinct, focused and deliver a wonderful set of tutorials on sculpting the human form. I now enjoy sharing these tutorials with the sculpting team here at Weta Workshop and believe they will also get a great deal out of John’s teachings."
