About

DANIEL SVENSSON
Propmaker/Stopmotion animator/Special effects and creature designer

Daniel is a never ending wave of creativity. He comes from the world of puppets, Stop motion and miniatures. Where he has crafted beautiful sets, characters and atmosphere, for a wide range of productions. He loves the art of propmaking, maskmaking and creature design. He is well versed in the art of silicone prostetics and gushing blood fx.

With a degree from the Nordic institute of decorative painting, he worked several years with paint restorations of old murals and faux paintings such as wood and marble imitations in churches and castles around Copenhagen. Honing his skills to use as a decor painter for miniatures and life sized sets. After a degree from Alma Screenplay Film & Drama Series he worked with the Oscar nominated Studio Se-Ma-For in Poland as a stopmotion animator for a year. After landing back home he started to lean more and more into his love for propmaking.

His specialties are aging and patination. The skill of making something new look really old. He has an eye for details and love for sculpting. He is a talanted moldmaker and works with a wide range of materials and teqniques such as cold casting, vacuum forming, 3dprinting, silicones, plaster, clay, foam and polyuretanharts. He loves to learn new skills and to try out new materials.

The last four years he has been working full time for a Escape Room Company, where he was responsible for the visual style and atmosphere. Crafting props and sets that not only looked good, but would stand for poking and prodding by curious players and yet survive to tell the tale.
