Hollywood's use of special effects make up and prosthetics for science fiction and horror films began in the silent era with Nosferatu and continues with TV hits such as SyFy's reality series Face Off. Students in this course will be introduced to character design and creature-making techniques as they create an original half-face mask from start to finish. The process begins with an introduction to character design and drafting concepts as students plan the design of their sculpture, and then continues as they build the forms using materials such as latex, air-dry clay, and papier mache. Students also learn painting and fabricating techniques suited to their design.
