Practical Effects

Date: Sundays, April 27th – May 18th (4 sessions)
Time: 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Ages: 8 – 13 years

In filmmaking, before there were computer generated special effects, make-up made the impossible, possible. From Frankenstein’s monster to Edward Scissorhands to the Joker, make-up artists brought countless characters to life through proven and lasting methods. In this four-week class we will explore the basics: bruises, cuts, and scrapes as we explore the dead and undead. In the final workshop students will use what they have learned to bring their own creations to life.
Each student will receive a starter make-up kit with professional grade stage make-up to use throughout the four weeks and beyond!

Heddy Hunt is a graduate from the Tisch School of the Arts for film and television in 2013, specializing in documentary filmmaking, production design, and producing. She has made robots, zombie skulls, hip 60s bedrooms, and darling puppets.

(includes $50 material fee for professional make-up kit to take home!)
