Michael "Mikey" Rotella

Halloween Mask Sculptor / Character Design

Born and raised in North Jersey, Mikey dreamt of being an monster maker since he was 6 years old. Watching films like Dawn of the Dead, The Exorcist, and An American Werewolf in London at a ridiculously young age instilled a blood curdling fear and eventual obsession with monsters, Halloween, and 70's/80's horror.

Mikey worked on the film "Dogma" at the age of 15, and knew that there was only one career choice in his future. He moved to Los Angeles, where he resides today, and realized his dream of becoming a professional sculptor in the film, television, and Halloween industries.

Mikey was featured as a guest sculptor on TV's Making Monsters, and has sculpted everything from monster masks to huge animatronic creatures.

Mikey continues to live his dream working with some of his favorite monster artists, and learning all he can to become better at his craft.
