About Movie Monster:
Artists Cathy Gordon and Ulysses Castellanos guide children and adults through this simplified process of movie making, addressing the question of who and what makes a monster by playing around with different movie genres. You can take part in any – or all – of the following activities:

THE SHOP: Sift through costumes, scrap materials and props to create your monster look.

THE SET: A movie set of tall grass, a mound of earth and car headlights will be ready to go. Adjust the set to your movie needs and you’re ready to start filming!

THE MOVIE: Audiences can see all the fun in progress on a live-video feed from the set.

THE PHOTOBOOTH: Become part of the opening credits for Movie Monster. Get your “close-up” taken for a list of credits featuring each participant as their monster!

Movie Monster


Movie Monster offers a variety of ways for children and adults to work together while preparing for their very own monster movie both behind the scenes and in front of the camera. Groups of all sizes can collaborate to make scary sets and monster costumes before enacting a short scene for the camera.
