Richard Martin


Prosthetic & Make Up Effects Designer

Richard Martin is fast becoming the go-to guy for prosthetics and special make up effects. His recent work on Sky’s ‘Gangs of London’ series II shows off his work to the best extent yet, and with a CV that lists credits for action, horror, period and documentary, the last decade has shown his rise towards the top of this particular field. Based in central England, he’ll go where the work takes him.
