About Reel Creations


Fred Blau with EmmyFred C. Blau began his career in 1964 as an apprentice to Gordon and George Bau at Warner Bros. Studios. During that period not only was he being trained to be a motion picture make-up artist but was also involved with formulating cosmetics and rubber appliances. His first assignments as a make-up artist were "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe", "Cool Hand Luke" and "The Illustrated Man".

Some of the projects he has worked on during his make-up career of some 40 years (short list) are "Apocalypse Now", Kate Jackson in "Charlie's Angels", "Scarecrow and Mrs. King", "Beauty and the Beast", Roddy McDowell in "The Planet of the Apes" TV series, "Adams Family Values", "Con Air", "Armageddon", "The Grinch" and the most recent "Planet of the Apes".

He, along with department head Kevin Haney, received a British Academy of Film and Television Arts nomination for best make-up for the film "Adams Family Values". He was also nominated for five Emmy Awards for "Fall From Grace" with Kevin Spacey and Bernadette Peters, "Burning Bed" with Farrah Fawcette, two "Beauty and the Beast" episodes with Linda Hamilton and Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" for which he won his Emmy.

Blau is a member of and serves on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and is a member of the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences.

In the early 1970's Blau was presented the challenge to come up with a realistic looking artificial blood. Today it is known as REEL Blood. Then in the late 1970's, because of his experience on the movie "The Illustrated Man", Blau was offered the movie "Tattoo" with Bruce Dern and Maude Adams. At that time there were no inks that were realistic looking or long lasting, so we invented REEL Body Art Ink - thus the birth of REEL Creations, Inc. During this movie the REEL Body Art Process, which was invented for "The Illustrated Man", was further developed for both the entertainment industry and commercial use.
