Lee Romaire Studios

Lee Romaire Studios, Inc., founded in 2004, designs and produces extraordinary live action creature, character and mechanical effects for the entertainment industry.

Romaire Studios’ TV, movie and commercial highlights include: War of the Worlds, Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore, The Rebound, The Dictator, The Battle Ground segment of Nightmares and Dreamscapes for Director Brian Henson.

Theme park clients include Walt Disney Imagineering and Universal Studios, and work includes innovative enhancements on classic attractions such as Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln, The Country Bear Jamboree, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and many others.

Prior to forming LRS, Lee worked for many Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning studios. His film and TV credits include Scooby Doo, Stuart Little 2, Windtalkers, White Chicks, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Six Fee Under, for which he won an Emmy Award in 2002 for prosthetic design.

Romaire credits much of his studio success to the Dick Smith Advanced Course.

The course gave me a real understanding of what separates great work from average work, and how great work is the divide between those who get by and those who create magic.

If you want to literally leap frog over the hundreds of hopeful make-up artists today, the Dick Smith Advanced Professional Makeup Course is the only course you should seriously consider.
