Jennifer Silvernight


I am an SFX and prop artist that wants to make the "impossible" and by doing so make the world a little weirder. I LOVE being in the workshop.  Being challenged and problem solving is my happy place. I can't stop trying new things. Equipped with strong teamwork and a proven record of leading teams, I thrive in collaborative environments.  


My expertise in prosthetics/prop making, animatronics, sculpting, detailing, and project management allows me to make valuable contributions to creative projects. Whether it's bringing characters to life or managing projects from inception to completion, I am dedicated to delivering remarkable results. Available for freelance work and willing to travel anywhere, I am ready to embark on new and exciting opportunities in the SFX/Prop field.
