This competition/elimination series explores the world of special effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination which allows them to create amazing works of living art. The show incorporates effects make-up, including prosthetics, 3-D design, animatronics, sculpting, eye enhancers, puppeteering, casting, and molding. Each episode concludes with a contestant being sent home by a panel of expert and celebrity judges.
The remaining artists venture into Azeroth, converting races from the World of Warcraft into realistic characters for the big screen. On stage, "Warcraft" film star Robert Kazinsky joins the judging panel.
