Hellboy - The MakeUp Process

For the production of Hellboy in Bulgaria in 2017 we welcomed Academy Award-winner Joel Harlow - one of the most innovative makeup and special makeup artists and designers in American motion pictures. He has proven himself to be one of a very few number of artists who is able to span the world of makeup effects design and creation to the world of on set makeup application.

Re-establishing the old studio system of an "in house" makeup and prosthetics department, Harlow and his team have successfully accommodated last minute needs and changes on a variety of major productions. This is exactly what Joel Harlow and his team did for Hellboy.

Enjoy the fascinating movie magic journey in the following videos!
