Special Effects Make-up : For Film and Theatre Paperback

Part of the Backstage series


Special effects have become an increasingly important part of both film and theatre production.

With storylines becoming more sensational and technology more sophisticated, the market for high-quality special effects is huge.

In this book Janus Vinther provides step-by-step guidelines for achieving a wide variety of grotesque and outlandish effects, including bullet holes, body fluids and burns.

In addition there is a chapter on specialised character make-up, ranging from Dracula to the Terminator.

With detailed explanation of techniques and materials and illustrated throughout, this book contains everything you need to know to look your worst.
