Why SyFi Channel's FACE OFF Show Is Important!!!!

Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! You might not link up the SyFy Channel FACE OFF Show with the job market, but it opens possibilities. The entertainment world offers market share, but did you know that Special Effects-FX Makeup Artists transcend to other business and needed professions such as: medical field (creators of prosthetics and makeup enhancements for victims of war, accidents, disease, Cancer, etc.), dental field (create prosthetics for dental enhancement), law enforcement (forensic enhancements for case studies), psychology (enhancing self esteem and image related conditions-makeup, wig makers, physical prosthetics, etc.)? 


On the entertainment side of this profession are the creative jobs that spark the imagination for our future astronauts, law enforcement professionals, business and education professionals, on and on. They are the workers and creators that are instrumental for the film magic makers, history storytelling creators, political message makers, sports industry PR folks, media help mates, etc. 


They are passion driven talented and skilled professionals who do make a difference in the lives of all of us in unseen ways and in unlikely professions. As an educator (I work in an Urban District surrounded by the entertainment world of Atlantic City, NJ and our sister cities of Philadelphia, Pa. and New York City, NY) and look to this profession as a offering for our creative talented students. Seeking jobs that fit the personality, intelligence, gifted talents and skills of an individual is part of the education process.


Face Off has created conversation and interest and I am grateful to the SyFy Channel for exposing another field of endeavor for a very overlooked and not very well understood or respected population.


My personal exposure has been my own son who is a Douglas School-Tom Savani Program Special Effects Makeup Artist (2005). A degree program which broadens a world view and expands the skills and talents of passion driven artists is a plus on the road to a personal and professional life. The worse thing a person could say at the end of their days is that they did not give themselves a chance to explore their passion and talent. No matter the outcome, which depends on hard work, skills and talent, good luck and opportunities, it is great to have no regrets.
