Special Make-Up Effects also called prosthetic Make-Up and FX Protheses is a process of using many techniques such as life casting, sculpting, molding, casting and painting advanced cosmetic effects. Whether it is a small intimate project like a nose, wound or scar, or a huge project with complete transformations like old age appliances or orc characters, Unreal takes on projects any size. 

Carola Brockhoff was part of the Special Make-Up Effects team at Weta Workshop who won an Oscar for Best Make-up in 2002 for her work on the Trilogy Lord of the Rings. 

Having her own company UNREAL since 2001 keeps her holding on to the highest standards this industry has to offer. Therefore, Weta Workshop asked her back in 2010 to work on J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit”. Even though she had to move 3 children in the age of 6, 5 and 1 to New Zealand her passion for this country and determination to finish this wonderful journey and to continue and apply her special make up effects skills was an easy step to take.
