It all started with “chopping” Mary Queen of Scots head off in 1895! This was soon followed by the classic films of ‘The Hunch Back Of Notre Dame’ and ‘Phantom of the Opera’ in the 1920’s. Later in the 1950’s we begin to see artists using their skills and techniques to create some truly amazing special effects with makeup and silicones.

Artists such as Dick Smith,  Stan Winston, Ben Nye and Matthew Mungle to name but a few.

These SFX artists really did advance the genre so much and so quickly that today anything is possible.

Transforming actors’ appearances with some subtle prosthetic pieces really is a work of art.

Remember, in most films and Television productions it is about “realistic wounds and cuts and brusies!”

The cost of the 4 week course, including VAT and all materials, is £3,900
