Hot Set and Face Off Tonight!

From the makers of "Face Off" is a new show starting tonight that pits set builders against each other to design the most over the top insane movie sets! This is really exciting to me. I was very into theater arts. I have always dreamed of creating the sets for horror movies. Syfy is finding reality shows that hit the spot--thank you, Syfy!

New York, NY – September 13, 2012 – Writer, director and superhero aficionado Kevin Smith guest judges on an all-new episode of Face Off, Tuesday, September 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy. In the episode, the contestants are teamed up in pairs and tasked with creating an original superhero and sidekick duo. Season two winner Rayce Bird is also on hand to assist the contestants with their designs.

Immediately following Face Off, a visually stunning new competition series, Hot Set, debuts at 10 p.m. ET/PT.   Each week, the series will feature two Hollywood production designers competing in an extreme design challenge to create original movie sets inspired by the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres.  Radio and television personality Ben Mankiewicz hosts, and judging the competition are some of the most renowned names in the SFX world -- -- three-time Art Director’s Guild Award nominee Curt Beech (The Coup, The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez); two-time Oscar nominee Lilly Kilvert (The Last Samurai, Legends of the Fall); and Art Director’s Guild Award nominee Barry Robison (X- Men Origins, The Chronicles of Narnia).

In the premiere, production designers Abra and Craig have just three days and a budget of $15,000 to conceive and build a film quality world -- a devastated alien landscape to be explored by a crash-landed astronaut. The designers draw support from their skilled team of carpenters and scenic painters, the expansive Hot Set supply room, and many of the special effects houses located in Hollywood. When time is up, the production designers have 30 minutes to shoot a scene on their original set.
