School of Film Spotlight Series: Joseph Menna

Connelly Auditorium

The School of Film presents a lecture by alumnus Joseph Menna BFA '92 (Sculpture) as part of its Spotlight Series, which brings visiting filmmakers, writers and animators to present their work to both public and University audiences.

Menna is recognized as one of the leading professional sculptors working in the field today. He is classically trained and a master of both digital and traditional sculpture media. After spending many years in the world of fine art sculpture and public art, he combined his lifelong love of comics, sci-fi and fantasy to become one of the best known sculptors working in the toy and collectible world. Recently, he has expanded his efforts into visual development for film and games. Beyond his sculpture skills, Menna is known for his strong classical drawing ability, which informs the 2D concept work he does for his clients and personal work. His list of current and former clients includes DC Entertainment (DC Collectibles), Gentle Giant, McFarlane Toys, Dark Horse Comics, Mattel, Fisher-Price, Hasbro and many others involved in both the fine art and collectible sculpture worlds.
