Every year Gorton Studio teaches a 4-week module on the world renowned National Film and Television School‘s Digital Effects MA course, to give students first-hand experience of how prosthetics can be used in tandem with digital techniques to produce impressive on-screen effects.
During the first three weeks of the module students learn fundamental prosthetics skills whilst preparing to make a short film in week four, in which they amalgamate these practical effects with their digital skills.
The short film is shot on the NFTS’s campus, drawing on cross-departmental skills, and is directed by Millennium FX’s Chris Goodman. 2019’s prosthetics module was taught by Dan Frye, with studio assistant Molly Bowen.
The film project – affectionately known as Gorefest – is always truly impressive and not for the faint-hearted, as you can see!
