Transfers & Lab

What do I do?
My primary focus here at Tinsley Studio is to manage and run all the prosthetic transfers for both productions and Tinsley Pro Studio Collection.
How long have I been working at Tinsley?
Well, I started working at Tinsley Transfers in June of 2014 and quickly moved into lab work at Tinsley Studio and have been in charge of all prosthetic transfers since 2017.
What's my favorite movie?
That's an easy one, Napoleon Dynamite!
What's my favorite part about the job?
There is so much too love. I get to come to work in the most comfy clothes. I get to be creative and messy. I get to work with my hands, listen to music and podcasts all day and then enjoy my work on the big screen. Not much not to like.

Design & Tattoos

What's my job?
I'm the Tattoo Designer. I draw all day. Seriously though, I create and illustrate the tattoo artwork for the studio productions as well as for Tinsley Transfers.
No, that's not all that I do, all day.
It's certainly a big part of my day but it's not all I do. In addition to illustrating all the tattoos I also print and prepare the tattoos for shipping. My job is very tattoo-centric.
What's my favorite movie?
Only the greatest movie of all time...Fight Club! Oops, I guess I just broke the first rule.
How long have I been at Tinsley?
Hmmm... I guess it's going on over 10 years now. The first project I worked on at Tinsley was John Carter around 2010.

Prosthetics & Lab

Oh, my job?
I do a little bit of everything in the lab. I prep all the life casts and do the castings, I make molds, fabricate and run all the silicone prosthetics for the productions.
How long have I been with Tinsley?
I'd say I started around 2015, so 5 years plus.
I thought you might ask?
My favorite movie is American Beauty.
Why is this a fun job for me?
First off, I've always wanted to do this. So it's a bit of a dream come true. The feeling hasn't worn off either. I still get just as excited when I get to work with some of my favorite actors or on great projects that I will enjoy watching. It's still all very cool.
