'''Brian Penikas''' The Man Behind The FX work on The Creeper and allot more of your favorite Movies.


Brian Penikas The well known, FX artist and also managing project Director and Key designer for Make-up & Monsters Studio, who also worked on allot of your favorite Movies including Jeepers Creepers. But that's not all. Here is his Story.


"For 30 years, Emmy nominated make-up artist Brian Penikas has made a career of bringing interesting characters to the big and small screens with the use of Special Make-up Effects. His career began as an assistant and designer to many of Hollywood’s top make-up artists. His early works include “Cocoon”, “Aliens” “Alien Nation”, and the Oscar winning Rocky Dennis bio-pic “Mask”  (starring Eric Stoltz and Cher).

As Creative Director for Make-up & Monsters Studios, Brian and his team have contributed their unique skills and talents to many of your favorite films and televison shows.

Whether it’s creating something as infamous as the scar for Dr. Evil in “AUSTIN POWERS II:The Spy Who Shagged Me” , a nose for Al Pacino in “ANY GIVEN SUNDAY”, legions of scallywags for “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2, 3, & 4”,
or something as monumental as the creatures and victims for  “JEEPERS CREEPERS 1 & 2”, Penikas and his crew approach each project with the same creative enthusiasm and attention to detail that has driven them for decades.  Every project presents new creative challenges and Brian says he “feeds on” and welcomes  those challenges.






What does Brian do when he’s not creating make-up effects for the cinema?  He is the “Keeper of the Glue and Faith” for his group, APEMANIA, a re-enactment/parody troupe that pays tribute to the film classic Planet of the Apes.  

Penikas credits the original 1968 classic as being his inspiration since childhood to pursue make-up and effects as his chosen career.  He also says that dressing up as a gorilla with his cohorts to entertain people is just another defiant excuse to never truly "grow up and get a real job"!"
