Cinnovations: SFX Makeup Part III
Written by rifflaff_f213uk on November 16, 2022
Our journey through the history of SFX makeup concludes in this third and final installment, but not before telling the tale of one of the most impactful and influential artist to wield a makeup brush. From his early days working for WNBC TV in NY to his peak cinematic work in films like The Exorcist, Dick Smith would cinnovate his way in to the annals of Hollywood history. Between Smith and John Chambers (remember him from Part II?), modern makeup would find its roots. Countless artists bred from their tutelage would reshape and further drive the art form of SFX and SFX makeup into over a half century of cinnovation after cinnovation.
