1. NOW You See Me

A two-hour seminar exploring the magic of make-up design and appliance building from an industry award winner, who has worked on many of the iconic films you know and love.

Charles will discuss the industry and instruct you in the ins and outs of makeup design and give you a workable and insightful understanding about how to create your own industry standard designs.

Charles will be bringing with him actual prosthetics and builds used by many of your favourite stars for you to examine and discuss. Don’t miss this rare and exciting chance to meet one of the industries greats.

Onstage demo and Q+A


This five-hour practical workshop that is an extension of the evening seminar.

Charles will work one-on-one with participants using various make-up skills and professional techniques so YOU can change your image to exactly what you IMAGINE.

He’ll start with teaching you the classic, Heath Ledger, JOKER make-up, some zombie trauma, and then move on to advanced techniques you can do for custom looks and effects that are photo real.

THIS IS A PRACTICAL WORKSHOP: Participants will do professional make-up and effects on THEMSELVES and each other!
