Millennium FX

One of Gorton Studio’s unique and invaluable qualities is its close association with Millennium FX.

Millennium is Europe’s leading supplier of cutting edge screen prosthetics, animatronics and special make-up FX, and is one of the busiest FX houses in the world.

Neill founded the company in 1999 and was joined by co-director Rob Mayor in 2006. Both are multi-award winning artists, with numerous BAFTA and Royal Television Society awards across make-up and special effects categories. They lead a team of the industry's best technicians who have worked with them on countless productions; from major studio features including Saving Private Ryan and The Wolfman and acclaimed television shows such as the new Doctor Who and Being Human, to iconic theatre for the likes of Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s current tour of The Phantom of the Opera.

Millennium has dynamic, vibrant workshops full of highly skilled professionals covering every discipline of screen prosthetics, and part of the package of studying on the Make-Up FX and Prosthetics Creation course at Gorton Studio Aylesbury is access to this workplace and its crew. You will be taught in the same building as Millennium’s workshop and gain insight into the company and the industry it serves. This gives you a live industry context to study in that will show you the realities of working in film and television, how a professional FX workshop functions and what is expected of its technical and creative staff.

Members of the Millennium FX crew often get involved in discussions with students, offer guidance on final projects if their areas of expertise are involved, and show their portfolios to illustrate how to promote yourself when pitching for work.

This involvement with the Millennium workshops and crew means the education you receive here is grounded in the industry you want to work in. That along with the high level of technical training provided, Neill’s input and the rubber stamp of his name and reputation combine to offer the best screen prosthetics training available in Europe and beyond.
