Terry Notary

First we had Nicole Lobart design the creatures on paper together with Barney Burman who then went on to create the masks, suits and prosthetics and now we need someone that can make them become alive…

And that’s were Terry Notary enters the game. Terry is not only our Stunt Coordinator but also choreographs the creature movements. And he definitely knows how to move! Once you see Terry performing, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. You’ll completely forget about the suit or mask and only see the creature standing in front of you with all its raw power and astonishing elegance.

For many years Terry performed at Cirque du Soleil until he entered the film industry where he made himself a name as stunt coordinator or movement coach on countless productions. He not only taught all the “Apes” how to move in Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes” but also doubled Tim Roth. He coached the X-Men and introduced Superman into zooming through the air in Bryan Singer’s new installment of the super hero franchise.

We are amazingly happy to have Terry on board. His huge experience, expertise and understanding of movement redefined my way of looking at the creatures. Thanks to Terry the stars of our film now have a soul!
