We specialize in the concept, design and creation of astonishing character and creature effects, special makeup effects, basic animatronics and action props. Our goal is to provide you with Hollywood level effects at very competitive rates. In Native American legends, a skin-walker is a human being who have gained supernatural power by breaking a cultural taboo, allowing them to turn into any creature he or she desires. In much the same way, the artists and designers at Skinwalker Studios have the ability to see and help realize your vision for stage, film, televison, or game property. No job is too big or too small. If you have a fantastic idea that needs to transform into reality, you have come to the right place. Concept. Design. Fabrication. Performance. Creative Direction. We’ve got the skills, and we’re ready to rock.


Practical experience and dedication to the craft means something, and always wins in the end. We live, breathe, and love our craft. Our concept work employs a methodology that marries process with a dedication to our passion and respect for timing and budget. Our clients enjoy finger-on-the-pulse project updates, and are included as a part of our process. Horror. Sci-Fi. Fantasy. Superheroes. A high school chemistry teacher turned meth-mogul. We do it all, and we’re up for anything.


Our work speaks for itself. Cutting-edge tools combined with a work ethic that can’t be beat. With credits ranging from feature film to television, to web to  printed page, we’ve been involved in all aspects of design, and know how to make it work for your medium. We’re right at home with trans-media and cross-platform projects. Whether it’s a new idea that popped into your head after a weird dream, or words on a page that you’ve labored over for years— we can bring your idea to life the way that YOU envision it.


Access to the best in the industry, from fabrication to finishing. The life cycle of our projects involves some of the most talented artists in the industry. There’s not one part of the process where we cut corners. Quality comes first. Translating from 2D to 3D? We’ve got it covered. Maquettes? In our sleep. Production ready sculpts? Absolutely. Bringing your comic script to printed page or digital? We live for it.
