MASTERSFX, a full-service character-effects company based in Los Angeles and Vancouver, is the exclusive monster-maker for the fifth consecutive season of the HBO series “True Blood.” In addition to creating the vampires’ makeup, demises and more under the supervision of Dan Rebert for the Alan Ball production, MASTERSFX Founder Todd Masters reports that his company is also working on the TNT series “Falling Skies.” Produced by Steven Spielberg, the sci-fi show features a race of menacing alien warriors that MASTERSFX brings to life with on-set puppetry combined with animatronics and actual performers. The production originally planned to create the aliens digitally, but a decision was made to use both CGI and animatronics in order to take full advantage of both ground-breaking techniques. The second season of “Falling Skies” debuted on June 17.
