About the Actor

Special Effects character creator and master mold maker for Stan Winston Studio & Legacy Effects, Gary Yee, is originally from Brooklyn, New York and lived in the heart of Coney Island where he started experimenting with special makeup effects at 15 in his bedroom in a 20 story apartment building.

He is self taught and his prosthetic makeup subjects were mostly friends. Inspired by AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON to seek information about FX Makeup, he came upon a documentary with special effects makeup pioneer Dick Smith, who said the skills a makeup artist needs are to sculpt, to draw, and to be a bit of a chemist. And Gary thought, I can do that!

While in New York Gary worked as a special effects makeup artist on East coast productions including CREEPSHOW 2, STREET TRASH, the David Letterman short CHRIS ELLIOT TELEVISION MIRACLE, and a couple episodes of MONSTERS and TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE.

Gary moved to Los Angeles in 1993 where his first film gig was in the art department on Steve Wang's GUYVER: THE DARK HERO. Following that, Gary volunteered to work for the makeup effects unit and never looked back.

Some of the highlights of his long career include working for Optic Nerve Studios -- then run by John Vulich -- where Gary eventually became the mold shop supervisor and worked on BABYLON 5, CRUSADE, and THE X FILES.

He also had the opportunity to work at Stan Winston Studio on JURASSIC PARK 2 and 3, TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES, and a whole bunch of other films. Bouncing between features at SWS and TV at Optic Nerve, for several years Gary served as the Makeup Effects Supervisor for a season of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, and ANGEL.

Gary also worked at Rick Baker's Cinovation Studios on MIGHTY JOE YOUNG. In recent years Gary has been working with the rest of Stan Winston's former team at Legacy Effects where he continues working on blockbuster films like IRON MAN 2, THOR, REAL STEEL and many more.

I have purchased several of the Stan Winston School of Character Arts dvds, and have yet to be disappointed. They are pricey, yes, but the amount of in depth information they provide is well worth the price. I have purchased several mold making tutorial dvds in the past and this one blows them all out of the water. Highly recommended!
