Ever wanted to learn how to run a mold or design a character makeup from the man who provided some of the groundbreaking FX for the classic An American Werewolf in London? For those in L.A., here’s your chance, as the legendary artist Steve Johnson is primed to instruct Classes 4 Characters.
Commencing this October in Van Nuys, CA, Classes 4 Characters was formed out of the idea that makeup artists should be able to choose which area of SPFX they want to learn, as opposed to paying for lengthy and expensive makeup schools. Made up by a collective of well-known and respected industry SPFX artists (including Johnson, Cleve Hall of Syfy’s “Monster Man”, Vincent Guastini of The Devil’s Carnival, cast members of Syfy’s “Face-Off” and more), the workshops are designed for working artists who simply cannot take time away from busy work schedules and intended to offer them the opportunity to refine their skill sets.
Said Johnson of his involvement with Classes 4 Characters (which offers quick workshops in the areas of Prosthetics, Prop-Making, Body Painting, Hair-work, Eyes and Teeth, Tattoo Covering-Temporary/Tattoo Application, and Digital Creature Design), “ I’m very excited to be the inaugural instructor. This will be a unique opportunity for students to get hands-on experience in short, easy-to-digest bites – once a week, on Sundays in October. Come on down, and let’s have fun and make magic!”
