JIM LANDIS

The hook was set a long time ago with my introduction to classic Movie Monsters and the Planet Of The Apes franchise.  I have worked in the entertainment business in some form or another since my early days at Disneyland as a performer.  In 1986 I would do my first movie behind the scenes as a special FX makeup artist.  Followed by an introduction into the world of props and prop fabrication...and here we are!  With over 30 years of experience our team and I are very excited about the endless creativity that lay ahead with Grandis Creations. Thank you for taking the time to visit our site.  Let's Create Something!

Cheers, Jim

STEVE GRODT

Since I was a kid, I've always found deep satisfaction working with tools, glue, paint, and raw materials. The entertainment industry ended up being a great source of this satisfaction for many years. During my career, I have been extremely fortunate and able to pay the bills as a product designer, graphic designer, set designer, creative director, and prop builder.

 

Jim and I met a few decades ago in college and then worked on our first film together as FX makeup artists. Grandis Creations is a 30 year culmination of practical experience and imagination. We hope to gain your trust and long-time collaboration. Let's create something! ~Steve
