Makeup Effects Madness

I had the good fortune to catch up the other evening with my talented friends Nick Nicolaou and Paul Katte who run Makeup Effects Group (MEG) in Sydney. I LOVE going to their studio, which is filled to the rafters with larger than life samples from their film and television credits. There's a treasure of prosthetic makeup around every corner. Both Nick and Paul love zombies, vampires, monsters, you name it. They've worked on movies such as The Island of Dr Moreau (there aren't many people who can claim they've worked with Brando!); Babe; The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe; and The Matrix Trilogy. Nick is also an emerging script writer, graphic novelist and director in his own right. Paul in turn is fabulous designer and artist. Anyway, they gave me permission to post some pics of their work so be impressed .... be VERY impressed. Many of you may recognise the first pic as the baby from The Matrix.
