A brand new series is premiering on Syfy on January 26! Face Off transforms reality by creating a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special effects make-up artists and seeing how perception can be distorted. Every week contestants will be challenged and pushed to create a whole new world with makeup, culminating in one winner for one grand prize that will launch a career. Syfy has signed McKenzie Westmore (host), three incredible veteran judges: Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands), Glenn Hetrick (Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files) and Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Independence Day, Resident Evil: Extinction), and a wide array of dynamic contestants.
Below we have a thirty second spot launching the original series, Face Off. It will take you through the sequence of developing a young female actress into an alien, older woman, or even a man. It’s simply a taste of what’s to be expected as contestants square off to showcase their skills on the all-new Syfy series. One lucky winner will have the chance to harness those make-up skills in a brand new career.
