DSD FX studio is a one-stop-shop for nearly all things creative. Offering comprehensive makeup services, props, specialty costumes, and more for film, print, and live events, DSD has been recognized for their quality, speed, craftsmanship, work ethic, and integrity, rapidly becoming a go-to shop in the Pacific Northwest.
Primarily, DSD FX is comprised of a husband and wife team – Damien and Claire Brooksbank. They regularly collaborate with other artists in a variety of fields, making DSD one of the most versatile and comprehensive shops in the market. By keeping a strong working relationship with multi-discipline artists from concept artists and sculptors to on-set applicators and other makeup artists, no job is too big or complex.
The excellence of DSD’s work has been recognized for most of their career, beginning in 2009, where their work on A.J. Brooks’ “Red & The Wolf” short film landed them a second place prize for Best Monster in the DivX User MonsterFest competition and has culminated in 2013 with DSD’s placement in the Portland RAW Artists Awards semi-finals, and Claire winning the People’s Choice nomination for Best TV/Film Makeup in the Portland Fashion and Style Awards.
DSD continues to strive for excellence by constantly continuing their education and training to stay on top of cutting edge makeup techniques, materials, and technologies. They also believe in the next generation of makeup and effects, and pass along their knowledge regularly by teaching at industry conventions. They have been a regular fixture of the West Coast Haunters Convention, and travel to teach the students and volunteers at the Oregon School for the Deaf.
