Richard Martin


Richard teaches on our 7-week Make-Up FX and Prosthetics Creation course as well as other courses. He is a specialist in hyper-realism and his fastidious attention to detail makes for superbly lifelike work. His company RMFX creates screen prosthetics and hyper-realistic statues and busts for museums, events, collectables companies and the medical industry, for which he uses many of his own innovative techniques.

He has been working in the film and TV industry since 2009, having beaten 731 other applicants for an apprenticeship at Millennium FX where he honed his skills. In the last seven years he has contributed to many screen creatures, characters and effects working as a freelance technician and on set make-up artist including work for A Fantastic Fear of Everything, Doctor Who, Casualty, Mission 2110, Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ video, Being Human and Wizards Vs Aliens. More recent movie credits include Hercules, Spectre, Victor Frankenstein, The Forest and Assassin’s Creed. Richard was also recently part of Millennium FX’s prosthetics crew on A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the BBC, which will be aired this year as part of their ‘Shakespeare Festival’.
