Exclusive Interview with Jake Garber, Makeup Effects Artist at KNB Effects Group

Jake Garber, an Oscar nominee in the category for “Best Makeup,” currently works as a Makeup Effects Artist at Greg Nicotero’s KNB Effects Group and on “The Walking Dead.” Inspired by the monster movies that he loved to watch growning up, Jake took up makeup effects as a hobby for Halloween. Eventually, he got his start working on commercials and transitioned to professional movie and television sets. He’s also been fortunate to be cast in some of the films and shows he has worked on, most recently as a tracker in “Django Unchained” and a walker in “The Walking Dead.” Using prosthetics, latex and animatronics, Jake creates unbelievable effects that pop on-screen.
