Who We Are
Rogue Planet Laboratories is a boutique art and special effects studio producing custom installations, sets, props and makeup effects for film, television and private collectors. Founded in 1998 by lead designer, Ian Goodwin, Rogue Planet continues to be one of the entertainment industry’s most beloved resources when the story calls for an extra measure of spectacle. From the monstrous and the beautiful to the new and the impossible, Rogue Planet continues to make them all a reality for the screen.
Rogue Planet Laboratories’ work can be seen on film, television and theatre sets large and small—the artists, designers and technicians have been around the world, on location to craft effects for production sets, art installations and even active covert operations.
When your needs include anything from conceptual design, prop production and full-body prosthetics (including the mechanical and electrical) to custom designed creations and art (for personal, home or display) Rogue Planet Laboratories is the only name you need to remember.
Crea•trix Util•is — INTERACTIVE ART
Crea•trix Fab•rica Util•is
While everything we do is technically interactive art, sometimes it needs no other reason to exist except for your enjoyment. Even when you’re not working on a film or other production—no script calling for an undead space cyborg, a fairy unicorn or hyper-intelligent dolphin tree—your life can use a little “production design” too. Maybe something to brighten up the foyer? Something intricate for the den? Something fun for the kids’ room? A special effect for the living room? How about a unique gift for a one of kind person? Bringing magic to people’s personal lives is what we live for.
Vis•io Ping•unt — MAKEUP
A true makeup artist does not paint the face, they sculpt it. Using simple tricks of light and shadow, or the latest state of the art prosthetic technology, we reach beyond the normal limitations of human bone structure to create a new living breathing being.
Par•at•us — ''GEAR UP''
We like to call this “wearable effects.” Not costumes, we’re talking functional, camera-ready effects that no character can leave home without. While a temporal displacement shoulder-mounted clockwork we build for you may not actually be able to throw you through time, it sure will look like it can! Need a helicopter-mount that sprouts from your backpack? Need blades to spring from your forearms? Need more forearms?! We got you covered.
Scalp•tura — SCULPTING
Technically speaking, everything we do is sculpture in one form or another. This traditional art form is the beating heart behind all the magic we create—and keeping an open connection with the vital roots of our craft is essential for staying sharp and fueling the innovation that allows us to push boundaries into the future.
Linea Pro•duct•or•um — PRODUCT LINE
Rogue Planet has been offering our professional quality prosthetics to the public for over 10 years now. Don’t have the budget for our spectacular custom work?—you might be able to create what you need from our vast private label line, available only through one of our authorized retailers.
Fab•ri•ca•tio — FABRICATION
This is an area where we really stand out. Here, we’re no longer limited by the human, or even common structures of the natural world—our inherent talents for problem solving is unleashed! Go ahead; we dare you to challenge us. We have yet to face a challenge we couldn’t solve. You want a rat to chew its way out of a box; wait, maybe there’s a cockroach running around that same box at the same time and then the rat steps out, smashing the cockroach and squishing the gooey insides all over? Maybe just a cigar you can smoke underwater? Yeah, we’ve done all that. What else you got? Bring us your challenge!
Arm•um — ARMAMENTS
Searching for a sleek new blaster to vaporize the invading hoards from Betelgeuse? Need a lightning trident to face the Kraken? Need a chainsaw machete with a built-in dispenser for hand sanitizer to survive the zombie apocalypse? Consider us your one-stop shop!
Mor•di•ces — ''CHOMPERS''
To truly get to the meat of a character, a unique smile makes all the difference—think Dracula, Alien and even Alfred E. Neuman. Using only the highest quality dental grade materials, we construct dental appliances that are realistic, durable and—most importantly—comfortable. So, whether you need to chew the scenery or insure that you can bite off more and still chew it, you’ll be glad you chewsed us!
In•fuso•rium — MOULDS
In order to take a sculpture from form to function, the sculpture must meet with the equally classic craft of mold making, elevated to a level of precision that allows for flawless replication. Transforming finely shaped clay into something that can be used or abused is a refined art unto itself. Mold making can be the most expensive part of any fabrication process and the client should always get their money’s worth. A good mold needs to capture every minute detail of the sculpture, while being durable and functional. Rogue Planet has no use for a mold that falls apart after the first pull.
Clan•dest•in•um — ESPIONAGE
Rogue Planet is specialized in aiding individuals and organizations with materials essential in covert surveillance and counter surveillance as well as customized diversionary tactics.
