Prosthetic Makeup Courses
Welcome to the Hybrid Fx School !
Studio locations in Leeds and Essex (2016)
We provide skill-based training that gives a detailed ground up view of Prosthetic Makeup Fx skills required to work in the Film, Television and Media Sectors.
Crucially we don't believe in overcrowding the industry with new Makeup Artists, so our key courses only let a maximum of 18 people into the Industry a year through our selective training.
This means you may have a stronger chance at getting jobs than other companies that only train and are not working actively in the Makeup Sector.
As other training courses tend to have over 20+ attendees per course, you should always carefully consider how much direct access to a tutor you will have.
Our 'Tutor to Attendee' ratio is between 3:1 or better and that is why we can very effectively teach our attendees via our Four and SIx Week Courses.
The industry is also very used to running longer courses at higher costs simply because they take on a high amount of students per intake, in our opinion this is not effective or needed.
As we are one of the very few companies that are consistently award nominated, we pride ourselves on making sure every good or bad part of the sector we work in is fully explained, so that you leave us fully aware of the best way to forge a career.
Our Prosthetic flagship course is the 'Six Week Intensive Prosthetic Makeup Course' that teaches you all the skills required in the industry today to be a successful Prosthetic Makeup Artist, be it working in a facility or on set.
New for 2016 and offered at our bespoke Essex Studio is the 'Junior Three Week Intensive Prosthetic Makeup Course', which is run during the Summer school holidays every year.
With 'BAFTA' and 'Royal Television Society' Award winning Tutors that have over 15 years experience in each of their respective fields, we make sure that only the most up to date skill-sets are being taught and by professionals still regularly working in the industry.

Finding Work after your Course with us...
No course you ever take can offer a guarantee of paid work to follow. Getting work in any industry is not just about your education, but how well you apply your knowledge, you aptitude, your versatility, flexibility and personality all will play a significant role in your future success, as will good timing, patience and a fair dose of luck, which is equally important.
We can honestly say however, that from the varied range of students that have completed our Courses with us, as well as those who have simply wanted to learn new skills and as yet have not acted upon them, one of our best students who travelled all the way from Greece to study with us has since been working with us full time.
Another after doing only the 3 Week Course went on to working on 'Prometheus' (Ridley Scott) and continues to do well in the Makeup Fx industry.
Some established Makeup Artists continue to flourish further with their new skills learnt from us, some have even set up their own Fx businesses.
Others have progressed to being excellent Makeup Designers, working on diverse events and productions such as the Olympic Games, and superb TV series such as 'Game of Thrones' and much more. Anything is possible, and your future is truly what you make it.
With us you will learn vastly more relevant skills in far greater detail in a much more condensed period of time.
