The Island of Lost Souls
A collaboration project between Costume, Hair, Makeup and Prosthetics, and 3DFX students, we redesigned the film to focus on Climate Change and a future where the seas have risen to make the Earth nearly inhabitable for Human life.

M’Ling once was a laboratory assistant and was Dr Moreau’s most loyal servant. He followed his idol since his fall from grace and became one of Moreau’s first experiments upon moving to his new location. Dr Moreau considered his surgery a great failure and treats M’Ling as less than human, keeping him around purely because of his increased strength and unquestionably loyalty.
