B2FX, Academy Award winner Barney Burman’s production company, used for special FX makeup, character and creature design, has expanded into new creative studio space in North Hollywood’s Arts District. B2FX is currently in production of makeup FX work for the second season of NBC TV’s dramatic series Grimm. B2FX has been involved with the design, creation and production of all of the creature makeup effects for the series since its third episode.
Returning to NBC March 8, Grimm is a drama series inspired by the classic Grimm brothers’ fairy tales. The series depicts the story of Portland homicide detective Nick Burkhardt, who discovers he’s descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as “Grimms.”
B2FX has also just completed providing SFX makeups for the independent horror film, Apparitional. Written and directed by Andrew Jones, Apparitional is the story of a group of ghost hunters competing within the world of paranormal TV shows. Their efforts lead them to a haunted prison with a grisly past that proves to be more than they bargained for. Slated for release in fall 2013, the film stars Jeffrey Johnson, Linara Washington, and Dee Wallace.
