Formerly an L.A. valley 'garage shop,' the multiple award winning KELMAN STUDIO was extensively upgraded & remodeled into a professional blend between a doctor's office and a mad doctor's laboratory. A world-class home-studio, every type of special makeup effect has been produced within its walls, from subtle character prosthetic makeups to puppet head replicas of actors to full head-to-toe creature monster suits, complete with animatronic capability.
Jamie Kelman & KELMAN STUDIO's artwork has been seen globally, on large and small screens around the world, for 20+ years.
The following photos are from inside KELMAN STUDIO, during the making of
IRON MAN, VICE, ARGO, THE SURVIVOR, HORRIBLE BOSSES, STAR WARS: THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT and many other movies and shows. If you are considering using my services for an upcoming job, please see the KELMAN STUDIO Credo/Mission Statement below these photos....
When Jamie Kelman / KELMAN STUDIO takes on your project and designs or builds your makeup or prosthetics, Jamie Kelman personally sees it all the way through from initial concept to on-set application.
So- if there are any issues, it is all handled and resolved by the same person who designed and built the makeups in the first place.
KELMAN STUDIO is not a massive full-time factory-style FX shop.
It is a boutique FX lab; and therefore not always available. We take on only one job at a time. But when available and when hired, you have the full attention and direct access and communication to achieve the best possible outcome - and the history/track record is of highest successes.
When we work together, you have assurance that KELMAN STUDIO will produce the most creative character prosthetic effects and top-notch, realistic illusions to enhance the storytelling and vision of your project, for you and your audience to enjoy.
