Maybe i am so last year but i just found a
show called Face Off where make up artists compete every week to win the grand prize.
I have always had a fascination with make up, especially movie make up and special effects. I even have several movie make up and special effect make up books at home and lately i start to practice special effects.However my skill set is pretty basic and it is grate to watch and learn from this.
Here’s the breakdown from SyFy:
“Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. The contestants are tasked with elaborate feature challenges including executing full body paint make up on models and creating their own horror villain. Not only will the show incorporate effects make-up, it will include a wide range of skill sets including prosthetics, 3-D design, sculpting, eye enhancers, casting and molding. Each episode involves incredible reveals of the competitors' finished work, and the drama of one contestant being sent home by the panel of expert and celebrity judges. It all culminates in one winner and one grand prize that will launch a career.
To determine who emerges victorious, Syfy has signed three-time Academy Award winner Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands) and Hollywood veterans Glenn Hetrick (Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files) and Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Independence Day, Resident Evil: Extinction) as Face Off's judges.
Face Off is a production of Mission Control Media with Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith serving as executive producers.”
