Barney Burman is one of the most sought after makeup artists working in the industry today. On Tropic Thunder, Barney designed the make-up transforming Tom Cruise into the abusive studio head Les Grossman, and JJ Abrams’ new vision of Star Trek, for which Barney just received his first Academy award. He has worked with some of the best artists in the business and on some of the biggest shows in town. Rick Bake (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Planet of the Apes, The Ring 1 and 2), Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Constantine), Ed Henriques (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), Greg Cannom (Bulletproof Monk), and Michele Burke (Austin Powers in Goldmember) are just some of the talents Barney ahd the great fortune of collaborating with and learning from. Barney Burman was literally born into the world of make-up. His grandfather, Ellis Burman Sr. was a true pioneer and created make-up effects before there was a name for it. He made prosthetics for films like The Wolf Man (1941) and House of Frankenstein (1944), animatronic animals for Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book (1942), masks for Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone (1959-1963) and much, much more.
