"Changing Faces" DVD Examines Special Makeup Effects

Produced by Scott Essman (makeup tribute events and videos for Dick Smith, John Chambers, The Wizard of Oz, Jack Pierce, and Lon Chaney), Changing Faces presents key behind-the-scenes segments which highlight the special makeup effects process for film and television.

Filmed over the course of eight years, the four major segments each focus on a different aspect of creating makeup.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Changing Faces by Rick Stratton dvd gives a general idea of makeup fx works and some neat characters. My only comment is that there isnt enough detailed makeup demo from start to the finished character but that could be I am slightly biased in this fascinating art form. Having never seen Alien Nation film or tv series it was in at the deep end.
Good general overview if slightly expensive but will have to compete with extra's on some main stream DVD's like planet of the apes (Tim Burton).
on the whole a good watch, nice to get another artists view on this time pressured industry.
Cheers mate
