Meeting Howard Berger!

At Blanche MacDonald it was an amazing day on Wednesday! We had a surprise visit from Makeup Artist and Oscar winner Howard Berger. Howard stopped by the Blanche MacDonald Center to visit, and gave a short demonstration and talk on both makeup application and working in the TV and Film industry. Howard Berger won in the Best Makeup category with Tami Lane for their work on the Chronicles of Narnia in 2005.

Our class at Blanche got the chance to get our picture taken, watch him do bloody special effects applications, and hear all about upcoming films. We were amazed by his credits list, which can be found here on IMDB.

My class at the Blanche MacDonald Center in Vancouver, BC. We were just starting to paint on animal transformations when we were happily interrupted!

It was absolutely amazing to hear him speak, especially since he just got back from the London IMATS. Best surprise visit we have had at the school!
