This is Howard Berger, Oscar winner for Best Achievement in Makeup for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005). He was in town this week giving workshops on special effects at Blanche MacDonald Centre, covering stuff like 3rd degree cuts and other gory effects.
He’s a big bear of a man, but a teddy bear really. He joked with the instructors, talked candidly with wide-eyed students and even gave hands on advice with a student’s final project that caught his eye. I got to meet him between sessions and grabbed this portrait. Thanks Howard!
