Suzi Battersby in the LCF Workshop

Suzi is an experienced freelance artist and technician specialising in prosthetic make-up, creature effects, prop and puppet making, and sculpture. She has worked in the film and theatre industry for 6 years and has, in that time, forged a strong career as a high-end and versatile maker for many major clients and productions, as well as independent filmmakers, artists, and musicians.

She has been a part of BAFTA winning and Oscar and Emmy award nominated teams with her work being seen on such films as Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant and J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens as well as on TV productions including BBC drama series Holby City and National Geographic's biopic drama series Genius. Suzi has also made props and puppets for major stage productions for Shakespeare's Globe, English National Opera, the Royal Opera House, and on Broadway.

Suzi is currently a member of BAFTA Crew, a professional network and masterclass programme for emerging film talent and was also a finalist in the 2013 World of Wearable Art Awards (WETA Category) held in Wellington, New Zealand for a creature costume entitled 'Puma'. Her piece was then exhibited at the World of Wearable Art and Classic Cars Museum in Nelson, New Zealand in 2014.

Suzi also runs her own practical effects company, Red Girl, an innovative studio with problem-solving at its heart. As demand for her own work grew, she decided to set up Red Girl in 2017 as one of only a few practical effects companies in the UK run by women, drawing on her own experience working amongst some of the best artists in film, television and theatre.
