When Hollywood studios want a bizarre creature, monster prop or out-of-this world alien, they turn to Cleve Hall!
Cleve Hall grew up in Florida next to a family cemetery. His mother regularly took him to see low-budget horror films. After seeing the film Godzilla vs. the Thing Cleve built a Godzilla costume that caught the attention of Six Flags, who hired him to build another costume.
Cleve started his own special effects company, Imagimation Productions, and worked on numerous commercials and theater. in the 1980s he moved to Hollywood and worked on many low budget films, including Pee Wee's Big Adventure, in which he played Godzilla in a suit he had created himself.
Although digital special effects became more popular in the 1990s, Cleve continued using physical based effects and received an Emmy nomination for his work on Yo Gabba Gabba. He also created props for bands such as KISS, Insane Clown Posse and Alice Cooper. For KISS he created Gene Simmons chest armor.
Cleve Hall stars in the SyFy reality television series Monster Man working with Sota F/X. Notable clients as seen on Monster Man have been Sean S. Cunningham, Tony Randel, The Asylum, and Richard Elfman.
Cleve has three children. Two of which have become a part of Cleve's special effects team, Constance and Elora who co-star with him on his reality show, Monster Man. Zoe Stardust Hall was born in 2010.
