What made you want to create your own art school and what makes the KIA / Creature Corps Make-up FX training program different from other schools?
Kurtzman: “Over the past 8 years since P13/ Creature Corps was launched we’ve worked on a wide array of film, television, and music video productions, not only on the effects side of things, but entire productions have been produced through our studio. During this time we’ve had numerous up and coming artists as well as internship students from dozens of schools and colleges come through the studio. Some of them had taken effects courses at other schools, and although these artists were very talented, we found ourselves retraining them on some very basic effects techniques that should have been covered at these other schools. We get calls every week from people wanting to know if we have a training program. Since we’ve had such a demand for artists looking for a real hands-on learning experience we put the program together. The Make-Up and Character Design course is the first of several courses the Institute will offer over the next several years. What makes the KIA / Creature Corps program different is that the students learn in a real effects studio environment. They learn the latest techniques using up to date materials, and participate in a 200 hour hands-on internship program working on actual effects productions in films, television programs and commercials, music videos, and haunted attractions, giving them real life experience before ever graduating from the course.”
