Don Lanning

Joining us from the USA, Don Lanning is one of the industry’s best-known sculptors. Sponsored by Titanic Creative Management, Don will be appearing on the Main Stage and if you’d like to meet him you’ll also find him on Titanic’s stand.
He was born in California in the heart of Hollywood’s creature effects community. With early heroes Lon Chaney Sr, Dick Smith, John Chambers, Stan Winston, Rick Baker and Rob Bottin as guides, he started sculpting creatures at 10 years old. He is known in the industry for his consistent ability to deliver the highest quality at lighting speed on projects from conservative realism to the archetypes of horror, fantasy and science fiction.

Don has recently received high praise entering the world of fine art with his modern take on pop icons Batman & The Joker and his elaborate re-imagining of The Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow and Tinman from “OZ.”  (There remain 6 more characters in the OZ series.)
