4.0 out of 5 stars Love Real Techniques, 18 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love all of Real Techniques brushes, they're all amazing value for money - this one included. A little on the large side for a blush brush - but overall works well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Special FX For The Novice - Nothing More., 21 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book with the expectation of it giving me great insight into the world of special effects makeup; a book that would provide me with the knowledge to create some creative pieces of my own. Do not buy this book with the same expectations.

I can't say i was blown away by the level of imagination and the amount of valuable advice Janus Vinther offers, instead i was left a little disappointed. There is nothing particularly special about it and in all honesty it presents itself as if its been created by an amatuer.

If you are interested in creating basic special effects makeup then this could be a good starting point; the burns and brusing makeup is well executed and well described but the character makeup and prosthetic pieces are just terrible. No A-Symmetry, no imagination and overall looks like something a child put together on a school project.

Overall an adequate read and informative to a certain degree, but perhaps not suitable for those who are truly interested and passionate about Special Effects Makeup. This book is probably only best suited for someone who wants to create quick and simple halloween effects. If you really are serious about Special Effects i would suggest 'Special Makeup Effects: for stage and screen' by Todd Debreceni.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly unique horror experience, 24 April 2012
If you're a fan of the horror genre (or even psychological thrillers) then this is one show you can't miss! It has everything a horror/thriller and gripping drama should have; with intense characters and twisted storylines that leaves you craving more and thinking "did that really just happen?" ...

I first watched it with the intention to only see the piolt episode, but over seven hours later i was still glued to the screen! Artistic, imaginative, disturbing, horrific and powerful - its truly a unique experience that will stay with you a long time after you finish watching the last episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fast-Track into America's History, 2 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being an undergraduate American Studies Uni Student I found this DVD to be incredibly insightful and helpful in understanding how America was formed. It includes all of the most important events in American History, including the foundations of the country and trials and tribulations it went through in becoming what it is today.

I didn't expect much from it when i first saw the opening speech from Barack Obama and i norally find it diffuclt to take anything that involves dramatisations and re-inactments seriously, but i was very pleasantly surprised. The cheesiness you usually find with documentaries like this isn't present and instead you find yourself fully immersed.

Its truly a visual document of the basics and through the way it is directed the information it provides is very easy to digest. I would definately recommend it to anyone who is undertaking a course in American Studies or History; or even to anyone who is intersted in the subject.
