Two time Emmy nominated makeup artist Michael Burnett has been involved with the Haunt Industry for most of his life. His interest started when he would convert his parents’ garage into a haunted house where neighbors would line up down the street to experience the terror. His professional haunt career began in the 1980’s when he produced his own haunted attractions as well as creating props and effects for many haunts around the country including Knott’s Scary Farm, The Queen Mary, Busch Gardens and 20 years of Halloween Horror Nights for both Universal Studios Hollywood and Florida.

In addition to haunted attractions, Michael has worked on 100’s of films and television shows including working with academy award winning makeup artists Rick Baker, Greg Cannom and Michael Westmore. Michael is currently the Director of design and development for FrightNight Studios in Orlando where he continues to create new and innovative products and characters for the entertainment industry.
