56 – Gino Acevedo – Make-up and Special Effects expert – LOTR, POTA etc

For this episode I spoke to Gino Acevedo, a make-up and special effects expert that’s worked on films such as Lord of the Rings, King Kong, Iron Man, The Jungle Book, Planet of the Apes and most recently with Jim Cameron on the new Avatar films. Gino was drawn away from a career in LA by Peter Jackson some 15 years ago and has remained in New Zealand ever since. I spoke to him in August 2022 from his home there and had a great chat about his entry into the business and some of the amazing films he’s worked on.
