AUSTIN & ALEX BENNETT’S GALVERA (Inspired by Godzilla)
Galvera waits patiently in a storage room until he’s needed on set. The mask on the right is a homemade mask the young “actor” within the movie wears as a child, fantasizing about being a giant monster.
Initially, Galvera’s hips were too high and legs too deep that we had trouble just “stepping” into him. We therefore had to seek out a doorway that we could use a pull-up bar with and hoist our actors up as they squirm to fit inside. It took about five seconds to enter each monster.
Justin Hankinson, our lead actor who played “Marc” take a break in the suit. Besides the arms and hands, the whole suit was one piece because we wanted to emulate what the actual suits behaved like when the actors were outside of them. This might not be the easiest way of entering, however!
