In 2020 we had the exciting opportunity to collaborate with Director Gerard Johnstone on the film M3gan.
For M3gan's costume, Gerard wanted to pursue something more unexpected than the existing killer doll tropes and come up with outfits that would be bright, sophisticated, and timeless yet not too unbelievable for a girl of M3gans age. The idea being, you could buy your child the coolest, smartest best friend, and her outfits would be just as sophisticated.
Then, to help Gerard sell M3gan’s look we put together a couple of keyframes showing her in different states. This frame, set near the climax of the film, was made to show how frightening M3gan could become in her heavily damaged and homicidal state, going after Gemma with a meat thermometer!
You can find these and more awesome work we put into the film in the behind the scenes video.
