Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. Each week the artists are tasked with using their considerable talent to create original movie-worthy characters such as aliens, human-animal hybrids, horror villains, cyborgs and others. Challenges incorporate a wide range of skill sets including design, sculpting, molding and application. It all builds to incredible reveals of the competitors' finished work and the drama of one artist being sent home by the expert panel of judges. The judges are Ve Neill, and Hollywood veterans Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page. The artists are mentored by Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Michael Westmore. Actress McKenzie Westmore hosts the series, bringing poise as well as the rich history of the Westmore family, a name synonymous with movie make-up.
