Meet Jordu Schell, The Man Behind Hollywood’s Monsters #ElectronicHalloween
Take a tour of Jordu Schell’s jaw-dropping studio in this video on YouTube from WIRED. Watch as Schell brings Dave the fishman (who is less monster, more like a monster of a person) to life and talks about his process, childhood and early career.
Anybody making their own custom mask this Halloween? We’ve got some fun ideas to get you started in the Adafruit Learning System:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
