Under The Mountain

About Under The Mountain

Black Sheep director Jonathan King adapts kiwi novelist Maurice Gees classic tale for the screen.

Teenage twins Rachel and Theo investigate the creepy old house next door.  They discover the Wilberforces – Shape shifting creatures that lurk beneath Auckland’s ring of extinct volcanoes.  Guided by the mysterious Mr Jones and with the help of their older cousin Ricky, the twins must rekindle the unique powers they once shared if they are to destroy this ancient evil –Before it destroys them.

Steve was the Creature and Makeup FX Designer for Weta Workshop on this production. It was an opportunity to create the tentacled creatures practically with suits and animatronics.  As well as the full creature suits, the Wilberforces included various stages of transformational prosthetics as they revealed their alien alter egos.
