Have you heard about the new TV show “Grimm”? One of NBC’s latest additions to their primetime lineup. Something to compete against ABC’s fairy tale show, “Once Upon A Time” which I have not had to opportunity to see.
I took the time to catch up on some episodes of the new show, which is loosely based on Grimm’s fairy tales, with a side of Law & Order. I am only two episodes in, but I am starting to like it and I am very interested in where the plot and special fx will go, later on in the season.
JoJo Myers Proud is Head of the Makeup Department on “Grimm” and Barney Burman is the Creature Makeup Creator, both very experienced and creative makeup artist. This show is a mix of practical makeup effects and CG. I would love to talk to them about what it’s like to work on a set like that.
Together, Proud & Burman posted this on the NBC website blog about doing makeup for the show.
Here is an excerpt from the blog:
“Hi there! This is JoJo Myers Proud, and I am the head of the Grimm Makeup Department. With me for this
guest blog post is our Creature Makeup Creator, Barney Burman. Our jobs are to design, coordinate and
apply an array of makeups from straight/beauty looks to injuries to creature effects for a very diverse
group of actors. We have great support from an equally diverse team of Makeup Arts and Hair Stylists….”
