Geoff Portass: Hellraiser, Nightbreed, & Image

Geoff Portass

The guest this episode is makeup fx artist, Geoff Portass. Geoff was an instrumental part in many genre classics. From designing and applying the Pinhead makeup on the original ‘Hellraiser’ to his work on ‘Nightbreed’, ‘Highlander’, ‘Lair of the White Worm’ and many other films. In the interview Geoff and I discuss what interested him about makeup fx, how he got started, forming Image Animation with Bob Keen and what he has been up to since then. It was a honor to speak with Geoff about his work and career and hopefully he get’s a chance to revisit the Pinhead character in the future. Thanks again to Geoff for the time and discussion.
