Be afraid. Be very afraid at The Prosthetics Event

Vintage sci-fi horror doesn’t come better than David Cronenberg’s 1986 masterpiece The Fly.

Much of its huge acclaim was for its special effects and Jeff Goldblum's performance in the lead role as an eccentric scientist whose wrongful experiment results in him slowly turning into a fly-hybrid creature.

The legendary makeup effects were created by Chris Walas and makeup artist Stephan Dupuis and we’re excited that Millennium FX’s Anthony Davies will be creating his own take on the iconic makeup on our stand at The Prosthetics Event on November 18th.

Anthony is a graduate of our flagship Makeup FX & Prosthetics Creation course and has been a key member of Neill Gorton’s team at Millennium for a number of years. Take a look at the life casting and sculpting in progress below and underneath the trailer.

We can’t wait to see how this evolves – look out for images of the finished makeup after the event and if you’re going, check back to see Anthony’s progress with the application throughout the day and ask him questions about his techniques, he’s a mine of information!
