Rick Baker and Cinema Makeup School Partner for Legends of Creature Design Scholarship
Seven-time Oscar®-winning make-up artist Rick Baker and Cinema Makeup School have recently linked up to offer a first-of-its-kind scholarship providing educational opportunities for aspiring creature designers.
“Creature and character design remain a vital part of practical and digital effects work and animation, but pursuing a career in the art form can be challenging early on,” notes CMS Director of Admissions Lee Joyner. “Thanks to Rick, this scholarship will give a lot of artists a chance to show off their skills and will provide a chosen few the opportunity to take it even further by moving to Hollywood to study make-up effects at a high level.”
The inaugural Rick Baker Legends of Creature Design Scholarship will be awarded in 2016 and be based off a review of creature or character concept art submissions. Submissions will be reviewed by an expert panel of the school’s faculty and directors and ultimately, by Mr. Baker himself. One winner will receive a $10,000 tuition scholarship to attend Cinema Makeup School. For more information, entrants can visit www.cinemamakeup.com/legends.
