A few words about us
Waldo Mason has worked in the UK prosthetics industry for 26 years, starting out working on commercials and exhibitions before landing his first feature film job on Stephen Norrington's 1995 production of THE MUTANT CHRONICLES. Although the film never made it past the preproduction build It was a valuable introducton to many of the people that he would work with to the present day.
After successfully interviewing for EVENT HORIZON at Animated Extras he became an established freelancer within the industry, working for several years at the Jim Henson Creature Shop in London and contributing to many more TV & Film projects including SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, BAND OF BROTHERS, the HARRY POTTER series, A GAME OF THRONES, PROMETHEUS and the latest series of STAR WARS movies.
Prosthetic designing credits include five series of BBC's WAKING THE DEAD, John Landis' BURKE AND HARE, series 1,2 and 3 of BBC's RIPPER STREET, Edgar Wright's THE WORLD'S END and the upcoming THE KING'S MAN, the latest instalment of Matthew Vaughan's KINGSMAN film series, among others.
