Fast 5

The Fast and Furious 5, the fifth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise has begun filming in beautiful Puerto Rico. Production has now moved to Atlanta and will be filming there until mid to late November. Christien is currently on location applying make-up for Vin Diesel. This pair has had a longstanding friendship and working relationship that spans the past decade. This is the third of the Fast franchise films that Christien and Vin have worked on together.

Webisode Coming Soon

Christien and Robin have been hard at work putting together a behind the scenes look at the make up and make up effects created for the recently released Jonah Hex. This is the first of what we hope will be many “webisodes” of our work for all you make up fans. Be sure to become our fan (“like” us) on Facebook as the link will only be made available on our Facebook page.

Recently, Tinsley Studio has been creating both prosthetic and tattoo effects for director Brad Furman’s (The Take) The Lincoln Lawyer. Currently, our own Mike Mekash is on set applying some of these creations. The cast of this movie includes the talents of Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Philippe, John Lequizamo and Marisa Tomei.

Tinsley’s own Mike Mekash was recently nominated for the 2010 Primetime Emmy awards for Best Makeup in a single camera series (Glee – episode Theatricality).
