Shaune Harrison’s fascination with prosthetic special makeup effects began at the age of thirteen while watching An American Werewolf in London after which he knew he wanted to make monsters.
Beginning his career on Clive Barker’s Nightbreed in 1988 Shaune laid the foundation for a body of work spanning over two decades on some of the world’s highest grossing blockbusters. Today Shaune is one of the most highly respected and sought after makeup effects artists in the British film industry and continues to create creatures and prosthetic makeup effects for film and television.
A key contributor to some of movie history’s most memorable characters Shaune has worked on Harry Potter’s Lord Voldemort and Mad Eye Moody Hugo Weaving’s Red Skull from Captain America: The First Avenger as well as numerous characters for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones , Danny Boyle’s Sunshine, Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, Stardust, The Mummy, The Fifth Element and The DaVinci Code. Shaune supervised the practical creature effects on comedy horror Grabbers and worked on the Brad Pitt blockbuster World War Z and Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron.
As well as winning accolades for his make-up effects work Shaune is also a talented writer and to date has directed four short films: The Grave, Skeleton Crew, Uninvited and Red Light, the latter of which have earned selections and awards at various festivals including the Cannes Film Festival, the New York and Los Angeles Short Film Festivals and the Sundance Film Festival.
