Jerad S. Marantz

Creature / Character / Concept Artist

Jerad S. Marantz has been working in the film, game, and television industries for over 15 years. He started his career at an early age interning for Special FX houses; trying a little of everything enabled him to narrow his focus to character/creature design. His acquired skills in sculpture, painting, illustration, ZBrush, and Photoshop, all aid his unique sense of design. 

Jerad’s many film credits include Avengers: Infinity War, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Shazam!, Dune, Batman v Superman, Justice League, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Clash of the Titans (Lead Character Designer), Sucker Punch (Lead Character Designer), Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, Green Lantern, Avatar, Snow White and the Huntsman, GI Joe: Retaliation, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Riddick 3.

  • "I always look forward to Jerad’s creatures. He’s got a unique and realistic design style that is a great balance between fantasy and function. You believe these creatures were alive at some point. He has a raw talent and understanding of imagination, mixed with that human touch that you don’t find in most creature designers. Jerad Marantz is a true and pure creature designer to the core, even before all the new technology. Look at his sketches and you can see it there first."
