Glenn Hetrick

Glenn Hetrick’s first foothold in Hollywood was with Optic Nerve as a lab tech, fabricator and painter—later becoming the CEO and reinventing the business model, partnering with longtime friend and collaborator Neville Page, evolving the shop even further into the newly renamed Alchemy Studios. Early credits include Buffy, Angel and X-files. He has worked with Ve Neil on Pitch Black: Chronicles of Riddick and Bioshock. Today, he personally supervises every effect for his studio’s many projects including hundreds of forensically accurate make-ups and corpses for Crossing Jordan, Hugh Jackman’s body replicas for The Prestige, all of the make-up illusions and prosthetics that propelled Heroes and CSI:NY, and the surreal effects in Sony’s Legion—just to name a few.
