The world of special effects makeup is a wonderfully creative and challenging area in which to work, allowing makeup artists to develop new skills and techniques.

Without makeup artists, all our TV dramas and blockbuster films would be much less realistic; in fact, poor special effects can be the thing which really ruins the viewer’s immersion in the story.

As long as there are people consuming visual media, we need makeup artists to help bring the stories to life, and this introductory course is designed to help those with no background in SFX makeup to understand the basics of the job and create a selection of realistic injury effects for their portfolios
