Special FX

On a non-art making note there's a pretty cool new show out on Syfy for anyone interested in some movie magic and special-effects make-up. It's a competition-style show called "Face-Off" in which people compete to make the best face/full-body effects make-up. You can find out about it here.

I always love looking at creature and fx sculptures, some of them are pretty badass and amazing. Such as this work for example- Aris Kolokontes

Then of course there is the Amalgymated Dynamics studio that makes animatronics for movies like Alien, X-Men, Tremors, etc. You can check them out here- Amalgymated Dynamics
