Earlier today, Douglas Education Center was pleased to welcome @gregfxguy. Greg was a one-time instructor in the Tom Savini Special Make- Up Effects Program. He has been in the special make-up effects industry for 20+ years. He currently works for @rlkurtzman in Atlanta, GA. His many credits include work on Doom, The Purge, and the Chronicles of Narnia. Most recently he worked as the Key FX Artist/Sculptor on the hit @netflix series @_haunting. He gave a special lecture and demonstration for all students in our Tom Savini Special Make-Up Effects Program. Greg will now spend the next few days meeting with each of the 4th semester Special Make-Up Effects students prior to their forthcoming graduation at the end of the month. He will review and critique their portfolios. Thank you Greg for coming to DEC and sharing your talents and experiences with our students! #declife #anythingbutordinary #savinischool #demo #sfx #sfxartist #sculptor #atlanta #mua

Today, Admissions Coordinator/Recruiter @traci.york traveled to Mahoning County Career and Technical Center to share with students at the Academy of the Arts all the programs we have to offer them once they graduate. Along with Traci, Tom Savini Special Make Effects student @biancablack_ did a great horror demonstration for them! We would like to thank the Academy for the Arts for inviting us and giving us the chance to showcase our school to the students! #declife #whatsyourart #sfx #savinischool #recruiting #demo #presentation

Wow I honestly could cry because I have worked so hard on this bug guy. Coming here I didn't know what I was capable of creatively. Having the best friends and loved ones to keep pushing me to my full potential. I want to give a huge shout out to my amazing teachers @douglaseducationcenter @gilgour thank you for giving me confidence in airbrushing and @jordan_pattonfx I couldn't have made this look epic without you!

It was an important milestone in the history of Douglas Education Center today as Owner/CEO Jeffrey Imbrescia celebrated his 30th year of owning this institution. He quoted, โ€œ30 years has seen a lot of good people, past and present, that made this school a success and I owe it all to them. We have a lot of good things left to do. Weโ€™ve changed a lot of peopleโ€™s lives.โ€ Congratulations on your 30 years of ownership Mr. Imbrescia and the journey that is yet to come! #declife #30years #ownership #celebration #anythingbutordinary

Never posted this little guy. Shrunken head from my 2nd semester. Sculpted with Chavant, molded out of Ultracal, skinned with latex and pulled with polyfoam. Hand painted and hair punched. #declife

My 3rd semester bust, originally digitally sculpted on ZBrush, then physically sculpted with WED clay. Molded with Ultracal, skinned with latex and pulled with Polyfoam. Antenas molded separately. Airbrush and dry brush paint job. #declife

Progress on the sculpt! Iโ€™ve taken on the task of sculpting Nergigante from Monster Hunter World (for those of you who donโ€™t know what he looks like, Iโ€™ve attached a picture at the end). Itโ€™s been quite the task, but itโ€™s coming along really well so far!! #declife . . . @feature.glam.mua @featurebodyartandart @featuremuas @muasfeaturing @discover_mua_mue_support @mua_underdogs @makeupxfeature @5fingerssfx @extraordinary_makeup_art @ineedhalloweenideas @makeupartists.worldwide @featuring_mua @featuremymakeup_ @yourdailymakeupfix @crazy.makeups @sfxtutorials @halloweenmakeupideas @glitterrealmco @dupemag @the.horror.hub @atarah_mayhew_ @atarahmayhew @nazaninfara_official @farabeautylovers @sfxmakeupshoot @feature_my_stuff @thebloodybay . . . #sfx #sfxmakeupart #sfxmakeup #sfxmakeupartist #spike #alternativeart #makeujunkie #makeup #art #artist #characterdesign #conceptart #dragon #makeupaddict #specialeffectmakeup #grunge #sculpting #grungeaesthetic #alternative #makeuptutorial #mua #makeupartist #sculpture #farabeauty #creative #monster #makeupxfeature #wings #monsterhunterworld

Recently, The Mon Valley Independent (@mviphotos) featured this front page story about local filmmaker and Douglas Education Center Film graduate Jonathan Patrick Hughes. He is currently writing and directing his new movie "Bad Hare Day, a movie about a man's transformation into a "wererabbit". He is also getting help from current George A. Romero Filmmaking student @ryan._.bernstein and fellow filmmaking alumni John Mulligan.
