Scientific and Technical Academy Awards

Scientific and Technical Academy Award plaqueCongratulations to Christien Tinsley (Tinsley Transfers) on being one of the ten winners of an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Scientific and Technical Academy Award. The certificate and plaque will be presented at The Beverly Wilshire on 9 February 2008.

Christien wins his award for the creation of the Tinsley Transfers technique for creating and applying 2D and 3D makeup used in movies and TV shows such as Prison Break, Alpha Dog, The Passion of the Christ, and Welcome to Collinwood. The Academy said:

These techniques allow quick and precisely repeatable application of 2D makeup such as tattoos, bruises and birthmarks, as well as 3D prosthetic appliances ranging in size from small wounds to entire torsos. They utilize self-adhesive material that features an unprecedented combination of tissue-thin edges, resilience, flexibility and water resistance, while requiring no dangerous solvents.

The full list of winners is detailed in the Academy’s Press Release.
