Hi everyone! It’s Freddy and I’ve got some quality news for you!
A famous Hollywood prosthetics and make-up artist is setting up a studio in Falmouth – around 30 minutes from Perran View Holiday Park - to teach the art form through a range of courses and boot camps. They’re even looking for models to work on which would be a wicked day out during your holidays in Cornwall.
Neill Gorton and Cornish wife Lisa will launch Gorton Studio at the end of the month after deciding to spend more time with the family.
Mrs Gorton Said: “It’s kind of a personal reason why we wanted to being the business here. We have a four-year-old daughter and wanted to spend more time with my family.
“But the business also fits with the town and the art education at Falmouth University.
“We decided it would be a very nice place to have part of our business. It is a great fit with the personal creative development of the area.
Mr Gorton, a Bafta award-winning artist, boasts a 25 year career working with directors Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott amongst others. He’s worked on some of the biggest blockbusters to hit our screens, including – Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, The Da Vinci Code and most recently Gravity, with his company Millennium FX.
Enrolment for the studio’s first week-long course has gone well, with locals and people from all over the world booking a place.
