This is an industry led, two-year course, equivalent to three A-levels, which will allow progression to University and or industry. We are working with industry professional and working prosthetic artists such as award winning SFX make-up artist Neill Gorton from Millennium FX Studios, to ensure that this course provides you with the skills you need for a career in this industry.

When a director needs an actor to become a horrifying mutant zombie, alien or a hospital wound/surgical or war scene, he or she turns to the considerable talents of the special effects prosthetic artist. This special effects course will introduce you to many aspects of film and TV designs ranging from full head prosthetic, ageing, air brushing, body paint, make-up and special effects such as cuts, scars and skin disorders. You will learn how to create aliens, zombies and unworldly creatures alongside other special effects.
