We are thrilled to have Kelly Mann on our sculpting team. Kelly is an Emmy Award winner, who followed a boyhood dream in 1977 when he accepted his first professional job as a makeup artist, working for a TV station in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where he grew up. Subsequent work in theater makeup, outdoor attractions, and other live performances eventually led to Kelly's decision to pursue a makeup career in Hollywood, California.
Kelly has freelanced as a mask maker, makeup artist, and special effects artist, working on many films, TV shows, theater, and print ads for many leading producers, directors, actors and major film, Television, and entertainment companies, including Universal Studios, New Line pictures, Lorimar television, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros. Studios, Buena Vista Pictures, and Walt Disney Imagineering.
As The Mask Doctor, Kelly has become "the" world-renowned mask repair expert, repairing collectible masks and movie props, as well as giving advice for storage and longevity of masks.
Recently, Kelly has put his years of makeup savvy into conducting makeup seminars, where he demonstrates the proper use of makeup materials to create characters for both theatre and film, as well as makeup application and proper handling in a learning environment.
Kelly is pleased and excited to be creating new and original mask designs for Trick-Or-Treat Studios.
