The Masters FX crew
Multi-Award Winning Makeup Effects Artist Todd Masters began his professional film career at the age of twelve, working on an animated birth-control film in his hometown of Seattle, WA. While his friends were busy going through puberty and learning about the birds and the bees, Todd was actually making movies about it!
Before the age of 18, Todd was already working professionally in film optical effects and animated graphics, and was creating complex creatures from his parent's basement and his mother’s stove. He headed out to Hollywood in 1985, and immediately began to build an impressive resume, working on such genre classics as: Big Trouble in Little China, Night of the Creeps, Look Who’s Talking, Predator, andPoltergeist II, to name just a few. In 1987, Masters founded MastersFX, which has become, during the past 35 years, one of the world’s leading, full-service, character FX companies. Todd and his team have contributed unique and often stunning makeup, practical and digital FX to many hundred feature films, TV shows, and commercials, which have been shot around the globe.
One of the entertainment industry’s leading proponents of practical and visual effects, Todd was a founding Board Member of the Visual Effects Society. He is also a multi-award-winning director, actor, and producer, as well as a successful toy-designer.
