It’s a fascinating melange of masterful work in this issue – reality TV and retrospectives, blockbusters and trailblazers, and of course some demons, nightmares, hauntings, and invisible friends. All your favourites, and the chance to gen up from the ground up on airbrushes – you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to look at first!
Look out for:
The second of a two-part feature on the legendary Rick Baker, from Thriller through to The Grinch, Planet of the Apes, and beyond…more great images!
Oscar-nominated Tristan Versluis talks through all the dead bodies, war wounds, and animatronic blood gags for the acclaimed Sam Mendes ‘one-shot’, 360-degree, continuous action war film.
Makeup Effects team Dave and Lou Elsey create elaborate woman-into-man transformations for Bravo’s social experiment reality TV show, and act as on-camera mentors as well…would you have guessed the disguises?
Features include Todd Tucker, Martin Astles and Doug Brown of Illusion Industries creating creatures and makeup FX for Adam Egypt Mortimer’s Daniel Isn’t Real, Joel Harlow’s take on demonic possession for CBS’s supernatural series Evil, Tom Savini: The Official Biography of The Sultan of Splatter, and in Dr Sleep, there’s a good look at Robert Kurtzman’s Overlook Hotel adventures in the sequel to the classic horror story The Shining.
There’s a great tutorial by Stuart Bray and Todd Debreceni covering both kinds of airbrushes, and all you need to know to keep them working well, plus wisdom from Cosmesis Advanced Prosthetics Studio’s Clinton Aiden Smith, the history of life casting in film special effects, and pushing the envelope at the extreme end of face and body art. Get comfy and settle down for a great read…
