Scott Fensterer
Owner of Scott Fensterer Sculpture Studio, Creator and Host of Monster Manor

Scott's love for classic monsters began after seeing an old Castle Films 8mm home movie of Universal's Frankenstein. It inspired his life-long fascination with art in cinema... from design to makeup, this passion continued to grow through his childhood. While other kids were busy watching movies, Scott was busy making them with neighborhood friends. This lifelong affection for his "lovable monsters" spreads into every corner of his world!

Since that time, Scott has been in the commercial arts field for over 25 years, working in film (Madea's BOO - Special Makeup Effects Department), television (Robot Chicken, Season 5, Face Off/Game Face), toy prototype production (Mego, Proto-Hype Studios, Scott Fensterer Sculpture Studio), theme parks (Universal Studios, Walt Disney Corp), haunts, and more, but is best known for his appearances on the hit SYFY series FACE OFF and its spin-off, GAME FACE. He has won numerous awards, and was a 2019 nominee for the coveted Rondo award for "best event" for Gill-A-Bration, the 65th anniversary celebration the Creature from the Black Lagoon, an event held at Silver Springs, one of the filming locations of the series and attended by Ricou Browning, David J. Skal, and James-Michael Roddy.

Scott and Monster Manor co-creator, Michael Kinald conceptualized Monster Manor following a comment comparing his home to that of Gomez and Morticia Addams... A Monster Manor. With that, Monster Manor was born. By November of 2020, the show page was launched... and by January 2, 2021, the premier episode aired. Scott interviews each guest with respect and appreciation for the work they bring us.
