New Australian show Cleverman pitches “Hairypeople” against humans and “shavers” in a not too distant dystopian future.

Special effects company Weta Workshop was tasked with creating the show’s hirsute mythical beings and company co-founder Sir Richard Taylor details part of the transformation process here.

“Huge hair jobs don’t come around that often. Making a hairpiece as small as a moustache is hard enough. Our technicians glued prosthetics to the actors’ faces and bodies and then utilised significant hair to alter their appearance. One hair at a time is knotted in whichever direction it needs to go.”
