Father of phenomenal creatures as a host on VFF 2017!
Colin Arthur is the legendary British creator of make-up and special effects for the films from an era when computers did not exist. Coming from a family where arts and crafts was a common thing Arthur has begun creating his first sculptures. This lead to a job at the museum of wax figurines at Madamme Tussauds. Than he “escaped” into the world of film industry and started his 50-year long career with an epic science-fiction film directed by Stanley Kubrick – 2001: A Space Odyssey where he contributed with original masks for Apes. Arthur worked on film classics as Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977), Clash of the Titans (1981) or Conan the Barbarian (1982).
