Learn from creature king Guillermo del Toro's Twitter film school.
Director Guillermo del Toro's name has become synonymous with his trademark monsters, from the wild but lovable comic book creature Hellboy to the terrifying, eyeball-palmed pale faces of the dark fantasy Pan's Labyrinth. Del Toro has even published a book celebrating this work, aptly titled Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters, and there's an exhibit of the same name at the Minneapolis Institute of Art through the end of May.
What is del Toro's philosophy of monster creation? How has he brought such memorable creatures to life on screen? The director admits that "monster creation, to me, is one of the hardest forms of creation," but he recently took to Twitter to try to share his process.
