How it works
PROCESSES & PATHWAYS
PROCESSES are the technical and artistic steps we take to make a prosthetic or makeup effect. There’s no simple way to divide these between subjects. Painting for example: painting on skin is a makeup process, but painting on a silicone dummy is art finishing. These processes follow the same basic principles of colour applied with a brush or airbrush, but they occur in different FX departments, or on set, so we’ve divided them into processes in line with industry practice. For those wanting to develop specific skill sets, our division of lessons into processes allows you to focus on your area of interest.
PATHWAYS combine a number of processes to take you on a creative journey with a beginning, middle and end; whether it’s producing your first basic flat mould prosthetic appliance or an extensive multi-piece silicone character makeup, a pathway will guide you along every step of the way. Our pathways are modelled on the content of the most popular courses we teach at Gorton Studio. In these we will cover many core skills that can then be applied to multiple pathways. This means we won’t keep repeating the same information, allowing you to navigate a pathway more quickly and succinctly.
