  • Education Building 175 (Production Studio), U of R 3737 Wascana Parkway Regina, SK, S4S 7J7 Canada (map)


TIME: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM



Known as the co-creator of Wolfcop, and the man behind each and every one of the character's transformations, Emersen Ziffle has extensive professional experience with make-up, puppetry and practical effects. Watch, listen and learn as Emersen breaks down his practical effects process, and conducts several demonstrations that are sure to leave you impressed and maybe even grossed out.

Besides Wolfcop and Wolfcop 2, Emersen has lent his hand to many Saskatchewan productions, including 13 Eerie, Corner Gas, and Basic Human Needs. Most recently, he worked on the makeup for the reboot of the famous series, Power Rangers. For Emersen's full bio, check out our Special Guests page.

This workshop is presented by and made possible through support from Creative Saskatchewan, which fuels Saskatchewan's creative industries (including film) by investing in Saskatchewan artists and propelling them to create, innovate, expand, and perform in their pursuit of commercial success. 

Students are especially encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there!
