Are you a fan of horror movies? Curious how they create those grisly makeup effects? Special-FX makeup artist, Ward Benoit, will teach you his tips and tricks to create cuts, gashes, and zombies for your personal film and video projects.

Ward Benoit is a local filmmaker, actor, special effects, and props guy. A self-taught makeup artist, Mr. Benoit  has done special-fx makeup on over 20 projects. In his experience on feature films, short films, music videos, web series or horror themed photo shoots, he has created a variety of makeup effects from bullet holes to zombies and gashes.

His hands-on workshop is open to teens and adults, 12 years old and up. Students will learn Hollywood techniques on how to transform someone into zombie.  All students will receive a special-fx makeup kit to use during the workshop, and to take home afterward.

All students must be willing participants not only as the makeup artist, but also as the subject of becoming a zombie as well. Stick around after the workshop for a brief photo shoot!
