  • Focal Press
  • 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,
