Description

Transforming an actor into a character for film or theater takes a great deal of skill, prowess, and creativity, and in
this new edition, author Todd Debreceni empowers you with just those qualities. From his years of film, TV, and
theatrical experience, he shows you tips and techniques that will have you applying your own makeup effects like a pro
in no time. Along with walking you through genre-specific considerations (horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and so on) Todd also
teaches you about the gear you will need, how to maintain your kit, how to take care of the actor's skin, how to
airbrush properly when HD is involved, and so much more.

Learn how to sculpt and mold your own makeup prosthetics, with a focus on how human anatomy relates to sculpture, to
create the most realistic effects. Recipes scattered throughout the book show you exactly what you need and how to use
it, helping you to create the best SFX makeup applications. Case studies feature some of the world's top makeup effects
artists including Steve Wang, Thom Flouts, Ve Neill, Neill Gorton, Greg Nicotero, Kazuhiro Tsuji, Jordu Schell, Howard
Berger, Matthew Mungle, Christien Tinsely, Vittorio Sodano, and Tami Lane. Put your new techniques into practice right
away and see how some of the looks from the book were achieved with the step-by-step tutorials on the companion website,
www.focalpress.com/cw/debreceni.
