Spectacular Spooky Special Effects for Students

Year 10 pupils at Ashfield Girls’ High School, East Belfast participated in a gruesome special effects masterclass this week in conjunction with Cinemagic and special effects make-up expert, Connie McGrath.

Ms McGrath, who has worked on a variety of film, television and musical productions such as Cabaret and Rumpelstiltskin at The MAC as well as films such as Universal’s Dracula:Untold and Paramount’s Lost City of Z, taught the girls some very effective techniques such as the art of creating scars, scabs and scorches which will not only help the girls prepare for the Hallowe’en season, but will also prepare them for GCSE Moving Image Arts and Media Studies in the future.

The event was part of Cinemagic’s Festival which runs from 1st October until 3rd November.
