Nigel Booth with one of the ape animatronics for Buddy.

Nigel Booth worked with Jim Henson's Creature Shop for several years as resident expert on prosthetic make-up, and combining that with animatronic elements. His earliest projects included The StoryTeller, The StoryTeller: Greek Myths (working on Medusa), and The Witches (for the final sequence where the witches transform into mice). His most significant responsibility may well have been on The English Patient, creating the elaborate make-up for Ralph Fiennes, for which he received a BAFTA award nomination. Booth also worked on the first season of Farscape, and sculpted D'Argo's head prosthetics, and personally applied the make-up.
