Remember back when you were a kid and you watched a horror flick and nearly wet yourself with fright? Remember the other day when you went out in Nottingham and saw that hideous looking woman in Tesco Metro? Want to know what those two things have in common? Make up. On one hand, the woman in your local shop was probably a bit too heavy-handed with the war paint… but the former, horror movie makeup - now that takes talent.

So, ever wanted a gash on your face? Luckily for you fine movie and effects lovin’ folks of Nottingham, EM Media, combined with Nottingham Skillset Media Academy and Mayhem Film Festivals are putting on a day of monster makeup goodness to show you the right way to deal with monster movie slap.

The day will comprise of a workshop, with discussions on effects from concept to realisation, creative and scheduling issues, practical applications of make up, plus a demonstration of applying a real fake wound. Following this will be a masterclass on realising the director’s vision through SFX, budget and scheduling issues and networking.

Showing their rather lovely faces at the event will be Simon Hunter, of Mutant Chronicles fame, Paul Hyett, SFX make up designer for Red Riding 1974 and The Cottage and BAFTA-nominated make up designer Jacqueline Fowler (Harry Brown, Red Riding 1974). These guys will be giving the talks, taking question and answer sessions and after all that you’ll be able to mingle with them and other lovely SFX people, asking any questions you need and hey, who knows you may even end up on the credits of the next big movie!

The event will be taking place on 24 February, and costs a very reasonable £26, including food and drink. I know, bargain!
