Zoe Armstrong from New Zealand first started creating special effects as a hobby she indulged in her spare time. Now the Theatre student is so good at her craft, you can’t tell her creations from the real thing.
“I was always fascinated by gore and how they did zombies, wounds and fight scene make-up in movies, and I often spent my days during art classes using newspaper and old paint to make myself have a zombie hand.”
Her theatre tech lecturer was instrumental in helping Zoe take her passion further by buying her her first special effects make-up kit.
She says she learns by watching YouTube plenty videos of professional artists, now she is so good she can create a gunshot wound in under dive minutes.
