Spend your summer learning how to apply movie makeup at Cinema Makeup School in the historic Wiltern Theater building in Hollywood and create all sorts of fun effects. Boot Camp activities are led by well-known artists including some of our graduates from Syfy’s Face Off!

SFX Boot Camp I

Students will learn and practice techniques for creating realistic character makeup effects, learn about blood gags and even get to try their hands at applying prosthetic pieces. To cap the week off, we’ll take a trip to peek behind-the-scenes at a major Hollywood effects lab!

SFX Boot Camp II: Advanced

Boot Camp II builds upon the techniques learned in Boot Camp I while introducing a more advanced, wider skill set. New techniques will include bullet holes, clay prosthetic sculpting and even live action blood FX. At the end of the week students skills will be put to the test as they get to create their own special FX film!

Housing

2018 Boot Camp Housing is here! The four bedroom, two bathroom house (Same as 2017) in Mid-Wilshire is an amazingly comfortable and fun space! Game nights, outings to movie theaters in the Hollywood area, and more fun awaits!

The housing for Cinema Makeup School’s Summer Boot Camps is a lot of fun!

Meals:

Continental Breakfast and dinner Monday through Friday are included in the housing cost. Additionally, dinner on the Sunday before camp is included as well as breakfast the Saturday morning following the end of camp. On the Sunday preceding camp, campers and counselor will decide together if they would like to cook their dinners for the week or order food from surrounding eateries. Lunch is not included in the cost of housing. For lunch, there are several affordable restaurants, coffee shops, tea shops and even grocery stores within walking distance of Cinema Makeup School. We suggest a budget of $8 – $15 per student per day for lunch.

Allergies:

If your student has a food allergy, please send a written notice to [email protected] before the start of camp.

Housing Counselor:

A graduate from Cinema Makeup School will be with the campers at the housing as their full-time camp counselor, providing a great schedule of things to do! Those lucky to stay in housing get to do a movie outing at the fabulous flagship Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood, have board game nights, and more!

 Housing is available for an additional $1500 charge (paid in advance; due three months prior to arrival) and includes counselor-supervised space, meals and transportation to and from CMS each day. Airport transportation and pick-up are not included, but we can advise in arranging them. Space is limited, and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. After March 14th, all housing surcharges are due upon signup. Please contact CMS to verify that space is still available for your desired section.
