Movie Magic

I recently had the good fortune to stumble upon an episode of Discovery's Movie Magic. Aired in 1994 and, apparently, not available on DVD this was quite a find. Even after almost two decades since airing, this behind the scenes look at character creation through makeup and appliances is fascinating. Here is episode 1 but be sure to check out all of TylerHaslett's videos to see more in the Movie Magic series along with other wonderful FX videos.

Haunt on!


  1. Wow, that was fascinating! Can you imagine getting up everyday and doing work like this. It was interesting to see how far they've come with the actual materials used since Lon Chaney's era. Loved Cloud Nine.Thanks for posting...very cool!

    1. I would love to work in movie makeup and monsters Marilyn. My high school counselor, however, thought I'd be more suited to Fashion Marketing. What the???? I guess he was half-right if Halloween costume marketing counts ;)
