WELCOME TO MEGALODON EFFECTS by
CHELSEA HERNANDEZ FOX

 

Chelsea Hernandez Fox has almost a decade of film industry experience, and specializes in special makeup effects, static props, and mold making. After graduating from the University of Southern California in 2015, Chelsea began her career in the special makeup effects industry. Since then, she has worked on a wide range of professional and student short films, including Cursed World Problems, which won her an award for “Best Special Effects” in 2017, Scare Package, which is currently streaming on Shudder, and Dispel, which is still touring in film festivals globally. In 2020, Chelsea moved from Los Angeles to Pennsylvania to further her education at the Tom Savini’s Special Makeup Effects Program, and she graduated in 2021. She worked as the Head Special Makeup Effects Artist on We Made a Snuff Film for the Wisconsin 48 Hour Film Festival in 2023, and as a makeup artist for the Terror at Tyrol Haunt during their 2022 and 2023 haunt seasons. She also worked at Dapper Cadaver from 2021 until 2024 as their Senior Studio Artist in the Paint Department. She currently resides in New Orleans as a freelance beauty/SFX makeup artist, prop, and mold maker under her company, Megalodon Effects. 

Chelsea’s work centers around fantastical realism, as she creates characters, props, and makeups that are eclectic in nature, ranging from fantasy to horror and gore, with a realistic approach. She believes that taking the time to reach realism within such genres helps the audience and clients grasp her work in a more meaningful way, for they are able to believe that what they are seeing could actually exist in the real world and their own reality. Chelsea’s dedication and passion to her craft is evident in the quality of the work she produces, seen both on and off screen.
