We soldered Robo insects and cast snakes from latex and foam. We burned our hands with acid, conjuring over a galvanic solution. We launched a salad into space. We furnished the interiors of miniature locks and sat behind the wheel of giant walking Krakens. Now, we want to tell you about it! But even more, we want to hear your story about how you glued paper bird’s claws and tails, made metal fish breathe fire, and sewed satin lakes to fur fields.

Backstagy.com is an online magazine about filmmaking crafts, experiments, technologies and people making magic. Our community brings together prop makers, puppeteers, fx makeup artists, costume designers. We love to share the expirience with like-minded people.
