Alan Carnes has been creating creatures, developing makeup effects, and acting in monster suits for a long time. In 2010, he attended Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles, California, where he learned the hands-on skills needed to further his career. In 2011, he had the honor of interning at the Academy Award-winning special effects studio Amalgamated Dynamic Incorporated (ADI).

After his internship, Carnes took many effects jobs that came his way as a freelance makeup artist in LA — everything from classic werewolves and vampires to demons and aliens. In 2014, he received a callback after an audition for SyFy’s reality show FACE OFF, where he was a contestant in Season 8. After his time on the show, Carnes started a small effects shop in his town of Redding, California; hoping to bring a new industry to the area .
