GM Foam

"My partner, Tania, and I began foam running at Weta Workshop 23 years ago. We have only ever used Gil’s foam, and every job that we have done over this period has successfully utilized the GM products. Tania and I met Gil personally at his workshop 20 years ago, and we struck up a wonderful and lifelong friendship that has seen us interacting on numerous projects for the last two decades. Frances Hawker, our head of make up and foam room, has been running GM foam now for many years, and has become very proficient in adapting the components for our various needs, depending on the challenges of any given project. We look forward to another 20 years of close friendship and continued business relations with Gil and his team."
