65  VFX Industry News & Information / VFX News / VFX STUDENTS GET GORY AT SPECIAL EFFECTS WOUND WORKSHOP on: January 05, 2011, 05:24:18 PM

Ria Ambrose leads the Workshop

As part of the pre-production process for the ghost project shoot at Lost Boys Learning, Ria Ambrose (Lost Boys' Production Manager and owner of Colour FX Specialty Make-up) offered the students a one day Gelatin Wound Making Workshop.  

The workshop was a new addition to the curriculum to inspire the students in conceptualizing the visuals for their ghost projects.  During the day, the students were instructed on how to cast, apply and paint gelatin wounds. Ria also demonstrated some simplified techniques to create old age and zombie skin.  The model that was used during the demonstration was also filmed over greenscreen to be later composited into one of the ghost projects (see final image below).

Ria Ambrose - Colour FX

"I so enjoyed seeing the enthusiasum of all the students once they began to apply the wounds on each other. It is amazing what a little fake blood can do to a room full of guys."

Student Grant Robertson; wounds self-applied

Marcelo Bassoli - Student

"The best thing about the Gelatin Make-up Workshop was that I could make things that I didn't imagine that I could do. It was the first time that I made done anything like this this and I liked the results. It is always challenging when you have to try something for the first time. I was afraid to do something wrong or not finish it properly, but it wasn't a problem. The workshop exceeded my expectations and I really enjoyed participating in it."

Student Jason Tranetzki; wound by Kishor Joshi; student Miguel Ponce; wound by Michael Balzer

Kishor Joshi - Student

"When I started observing movies I had always wondered, how do they make wounds and blood? It makes me curious when they show a swollen/wounded eye in films, I know it's make-up but how do they do it ?  After attending this workshop, I at least know how they start, so for me and this was the best part of workshop.

As a visual effects artist this workshop should help me to get the basics right. While working on a 'slit throat' my focus was to blend it with (fellow student) Jason's skin tone and to show fresh blood dripping. It was not the best looking but I think I was happy with my first attempt.

To sum up I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. It was quite educational. One day I would like to do a swollen eye make-up. Let there be blood!"

Model Heather; compositing by Carlos Guzman

Carlos Guzman - Student

"For me it was really interesting because I have never done makeup before. I think the class was awesome, but so fast, I would like to do more, maybe two or three more classes. I think we need more practice and would like to learn more about the techniques."
