About Face Off

Face Off is a reality TV contest in the form of an elimination series that gives viewers a look at the world of special-effects make-up. Each week, contestants are given assignments and we get to watch the artists deploy their imaginative approach to creating incredible works of living art.

When they compete in each challenge, we watch them employ/incorporate various aspects of effects make-up, including

  • prosthetic,
  • 3-D design,
  • animatronics,
  • sculpting,
  • eye enhancers,
  • puppeteering,
  • casting, and
  • molding.

The judges are also experts from within the field. They are

  • Glenn Hetrick: (The Hunger Games, Journey 2, Legion, Chronicles of Riddick),
  • Ve Neill: (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games, John Carter, Priest),
  • Patrick Tatopoulos: (Silent Hill: Revelation, Total Recall, 2012, Underworld franchise, Resident Evil: Extinction., I am Legend, and many more hits).

As you can see, the judges are active in the industry. Not just name plates at a table. The show is hosted by the beautiful McKenzie Westmore, the daughter of Michael Westmore.

When it first premiered, I didn’t think I was impressed. But then I caught a few episodes and found myself riveted. To watch these artists crank out results in a short amount of time is pretty impressive. And you get an incredible behind-the-scenes look at how EFX artists tackle their jobs.

So yea… I enjoy the series.

Below is a sneak peek of the season premiere of Face Off:
