My name is Adam Dougherty and I make monsters!
I’m a special effects artist and character designer for the company StudioADI. As a day job I help to create monsters for movies such as Orcs from the Netflix Original: Bright, Dinosaurs for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Annabelle from the Conjuring series and Shane Blacks Predator.
In my free time I’m trying to learn how to be a filmmaker and explore different techniques of practical effects such as stop motion and water tank puppetry while also creating stories and characters of my own.
Here is a behind the scenes video of what I’ve done so far. I hope you enjoy!
