Special FX for Teens II: Monsters & Gore

Special FX for Teens II: Monsters & Gore


Open to students ages 12-16 years old.

In this advanced 12-hour weekend speciality course, teen students will dive even deeper into the world of Special Effects with ASoF’s lead SFX instructor, artist Jennifer Cunningham.

Participants will work exclusively in the themes of monster, zombieinjury, and wound applications — with guidance and hands-on exercises throughout. 

Students will explore various techniques, employing both homemade and professional makeup supplies.

Topics covered:

  • monster + zombie make-up

  • wound application

  • injury application

  • using homemade items (to achieve looks without compromising your budget) 

  • professional/industry standard make up and supplies

Students will partake in a portraits photoshoot to capture looks created in camp. Students will leave this camp with a mini makeup kit including items that will be demonstrated in class so that you can recreate creations for future projects, digital photos + short videos compromised of each of the looks created shot in our professional film/video studio.
