Makeup Artist

Locked in the Cellar Creations consists of 2 FX artists with a passion to provide quality effects at affordable prices. We only take on one film project at a time, so that we can dedicate our full attention and resources to your needs (as we all know that creating good FX can be very labour intensive). As experienced artists, we have a knack for finding the balance between your dreams and your budget, working with professional or alternative (aka. cheaper!) materials as needed.

We have been making props & prosthetics for independent films since 1999. We started offering our hand crafted prosthetics and props to the general public in 2014. You can find these in our webshop and at various shows and conventions.
