Fans of the film business can look forward to Neill Gorton. He has worked together with leading directors and actors/actresses in Hollywood productions and is well-known for his prosthetics, special effects and animatronics, for which he has already received numerous awards. This workshop will incorporate 2D transfer techniques with 3D elements, a new and exciting way of creating casualty effects quickly and simply, that work perfectly for camera.
