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

For Summer 2017 it is our goal to provide housing for ALL sessions of Boot Camp I and Boot Camp II*. We will have more information on housing in the beginning of 2017. 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.

Questions or concerns? Please email outreach@cinemamakeup.com or give us a call at 213 368 1234

*-Housing availability is subject to meeting a minimum demand level, and CMS reserves the right to cap availability or cancel. In the event that CMS chooses to cancel, it will provide ample notice and full refunds.
