The Art of Special Effects Makeup Is So Impressive

Here’s an interesting portrait of Howard Berger, a special makeup effects artist who’s worked on films like The Chronicles of Narnia and Inglorious Basterds, and the work he does to transform actors into, well, monsters. You get to see everything: adding clay to an actor’s lifecast to build the form, the molding process to create the prosthetics, the baking to get everything settled, the painting for detail, and the application on the actors themselves.
