We spoke with special effects make-up artist, Ben Bornstein, a Mass native, who has a growing resume of film credits, most recently from gigs he’s done here in New England. Ben spent 5 years learning the trade in Hollywood, CA and moved back home 2 years ago to find the film industry keeping him quite busy.
Having worked on films such as The Fighter, Zookeeper, The Departed, Oxy-Morons, Surrogates, just to name a few, Ben’s talent has allowed him to establish his own business, Creative Initiative Make-Up & Effects Studio in Woburn, MA.
Ben is set up in Salem, MA (on Essex street) this weekend where we caught him making his magic come alive. Watch Ben transform a pedestrian into a zombie and talk about working in Hollywood East:
Ben’s website is currently under construction, but you can reach him at: [email protected] or 617-794-3531.
