Glenn Hetrick

Upon arriving in Hollywood he found his first foothold at Optic Nerve Studios as a lab technician, fabricator, painter and eventually sculptor and designer - working tirelessly for years on several seasons of Buffy, Angel, and X-files among others. The path of his career led him to opportunities at other studios as well, such as Two Hours in the Dark on Feast and the Pumpkinhead sequels, working with Ve Neil on PitchBlack: Chronicles of Riddick and contributing to XFX on several projects including Blade 2. He continued auditioning and performing as well, landing multiple guest star roles as a character actor in The Shield, Committed, Charmed, Scrubs, and Heroes as well as various other projects including the first Pirates of The Caribbean film.

After more than a decade of amazing shows, he partnered with longtime friend and collaborator Neville Page, evolving the shop even further into the newly renamed Alchemy Studios! As the CEO, he personally supervises every effect for his studio's many projects including hundreds of forensically accurate make-ups and corpses for Crossing Jordan, Hugh Jackman's body replicas for The Prestige, all of the make-up illusions and prosthetics that propelled Heroes and CSI:NY, and the surreal effects in Sony's Legion. He constantly continues working as both FX Artist and performer. His resume includes special effects for The Event, custom wardrobe and instruments for Lady Gaga, prosthetic effects and props for Disney's Journey 2: Mysterious Island, Lionsgate's Hunger Games 1, 2, 3 and 4, The Dictator, The Host, Mad Men and a myriad of other projects. Alchemy is currently creating the "Inhumans" characters for MARVEL on Agents of SH.I.E.L.D. and all of the hyper realistic effects for Steven Spielberg's Extant. Simultaneous to his work as an FX Artist, he continues his development work as Producer on both NECROSCOPE and his own Television series based on the EC Comics franchise Tales from the Crypt/Vault of Horror. Marrying his passions for performance and FX, he stars in all 10 Seasons of the on-going Syfy Hit Face-Off!
