A Neill Treat!

IMATS Vancouver is in for a wonderful treat! And just in time for Halloween no less. Make-Up Artist’s publisher and IMATS executive producer, Michael Key, will sit down with Ve Neill for a live interview on the IMATS stage!

Ve Neill is the make-up artist behind some of our favorite and most iconic movie characters. Characters that many have tried to piece together and reproduce Halloween after Halloween. How many times have you seen an adorable five-year-old Edward Scissorhands or teenaged Beetlejuice? We can all thank the talented Ve Neill for these awesome characters that run up and ring our doorbells all night.

Neill won three Academy Awards for Beetlejuice, Mrs. Doubtfire and Ed Wood, two Emmys for Pee-wee’s Playhouse and The Shining and a BAFTA for Pirates of the Caribbean. She also created space travelers for Star TrekThe Motion Picture and Galaxy Quest; rock ‘n’ roll vampires for The Lost Boys; transformed Johnny Depp into Edward Scissorhands, Jack Sparrow, Ed Wood and Sweeney Todd; and Robin Williams into Mrs. Doubtfire. Neill’s been a judge on the hit TV series Face Off and was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by Local 706. She has three films coming out this year: Shock and Awe starring Woody Harrelson and James Marsden, A Star is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga and the quirky new life-inspired film Welcome to Marwen starring Steve Carell and Leslie Mann.

We are very excited to have this renowned make-up artist with us in Vancouver. You don’t want to miss this opportunity!
