San Francisco Bay Area native Steven Anderson has been a union make-up artist since 1982. He was classically trained in the craft at San Francisco State University, and apprenticed at The San Francisco Opera.
Switching to features, he worked in the Bay Area on such films as Michael Bay’s The Rock, Michael Apted’s Class Action, and Chris Columbus’ Nine Months. He also worked for many years at the groundbreaking visual effects facility Industrial Light & Magic, and thus was able to contribute to such popular films as Robert Zemeckis’ Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ron Howard’s Willow, and James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day. In the mid-1990s, he spent five years as the key make-up artist for the San Francisco-based television series Nash Bridges.
Mr. Anderson continues to work in both television (on shows such as Star Trek: Enterprise, Shark, and the current Pushing Daisies) and film. His recent feature work includes Philip Kaufman’s Twisted; Gore Verbinski’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End; and Sam Mendes’ Jarhead.
