Leonard Engelman, Director of Education Emeritus at the school and former Vice President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Governor of the Oscars’ Makeup Artist and Hairstylists Branch, steps into CMS classrooms on a regular basis to mentor students and teach honors workshops.
With its close proximity to the heart of the American film industry, Cinema Makeup School’s special effects programs benefit from close ties to many award-winning special effects labs and artists and students in beauty and fashion routinely have opportunities to work on major celebrities, sometimes even before they have finished school.
