Millennium FX has an associated training facility, The Neill Gorton Prosthetics Studio, which occupies an adjacent workshop. Established in 2003, Gorton Studio was Europe's first educational studio to specialise solely in screen prosthetics. Having led the way in teaching the subject ever since, it is now widely regarded by the industry as the most relevant place to learn the trade.

The Studio's teaching staff are all current, senior film and television prosthetics artists with a wealth of professional experience. Its philosophy is to deliver genuine value for money by teaching highly contemporary techniques from the forefront of the industry, and de-mystify a subject which can be prone to misrepresentation in the education arena.

Training for production crews

Investing in some prosthetics training can be cost effective for productions and help them maximise the impact of their prosthetics budgets. It can often be cheaper to teach production make-up staff how to apply our prosthetics, than to engage our specialist technicians to do the on-set application work.

When the nature of the prosthetics and the production are appropriate for this, Gorton Studio can offer highly effective, bespoke training. Please talk to our staff for further details.

Training for professionals, teachers, students and beginners

Gorton Studio provides film industry-linked prosthetics training of the highest standard. It offers both prescribed and bespoke courses for a wide range of purposes and abilities including:

  • Industry professionals wishing to enhance their prosthetics skills
  • Teachers wanting to learn industry-relevant techniques to pass on to their students
  • Students at other institutions whose courses require specialist modules in prosthetics
  • Beginners aiming to make screen prosthetics their future careers
  • Practitioners from other industries wishing to learn transferable technical skills

Neill has also produced a collection of 'how to' DVDs which give comprehensive tutorials on all aspects of the manufacture and application of prosthetics.
