Fangoria, the most widely-read horror-themed publication in the world, sat down with P3R Publicity’s client Christien Tinsley to speak of the horror we all know and love from the character designs of American Horror Story. Visiting him at Tinsley Studio, the crew was able to get a sneak peak into the FX house behind it all.
Christien spoke of how he learned monsters and makeup were his calling as he began to sculpt, paint, and create Halloween masks at a young age. Being self-taught he drew inspiration from that which interested him including Fangoria! Reading the makeup lab sections and mimicking what he saw in pictures, Christien developed his technique. Just as he works in film today, he has always been influenced by movies such as The Thing, An American Werewolf in London, and Sword and the Sorcerer. Christien continues to design characters for American Horror Story and other upcoming films, but says he enjoys “changing someone’s appearance realistically” the most. So what does that mean for AHS season 2? You’ll have to watch to find out. To read the whole interview click HERE!
