We’ve all seen Indiana Jones, Avatar, The Hobbit Trilogy, Man of Steel, Thor: Ragnarok, Chappie, Dracula Untold, Ghost in the Shell… and now’s your chance to get background information from someone who’s worked in the film industry for nearly a decade!

Steven Edwards – Wintec alumni, designer and prop maker for a whole raft of famous feature films – will be sharing about his experiences working at Weta Workshop and how new technology has evolved the methods of prop and costume fabrication in film, in a presentation aptly titled ‘Making Armies’.
