SFX Make-up Artist
Margaret Caragan is the owner of Pandora FX, located in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. She has worked as a special makeup effects artist since 2006, when makeup first rocked her world. She’s got her a BFA in Sculpture from the Academy of Art University, some AA’s from Napa Valley College and scholarships and certificates from good ol’ Cinema Makeup School in LA. But the REAL learning came on the job with over 500 projects.
Margaret believes in makeup with character and LOVES everything about the makeup process from script to concept to screen and enjoys department heading on special makeup effects-driven projects for narrative and Indie film as well as guiding the direction for spot on fx for commercial and medical work. She specializes in detailed designs and enjoys working one-on-one with directors, producers, writers, and creatives to manifest the makeups that tell the story they’re looking for. Margaret is known for casualty and character makeups, creating custom prosthetics for creatures, likeness, old age, injuries, and extreme transformations. But she’s also looking for adventures in storytelling and making her mark on the universe with passion and art.
