Phantom Effects Special Effects Make-up Technicians was founded in 1997 by Aaron Peerless who was professionally trained in special effects make-up in Toronto under Randy Daudlin at Illusions Unlimited Inc. After starting Phantom Effects Aaron worked on several movies and TV shows including Lexx and Phase IV. In 2013 Aaron teamed up with his partner in life Jaimie Corbin, who quickly became a professional force to be reckoned with. Aaron's gory vision, sculpting genius and his ability to tackle huge projects with no time, on a small budget paired very well with Jaimie's artistic and professional talents, such as costume and set design, marketing, and her eye catching make-ups.
Throughout the years our team has been blessed with great opportunities and many wonderful experiences. Take a look through our pages and see what we've been up to.
See below for some of our 'Giving Back' projects.
In 2016 we worked alongside country music singer Kevin Davison and director David Pichette for a music video, "When Those Sirens Are Gone" sponsored by the TEMA Conter Memorial Trust. This video was created to bring awareness to first responders and their internal struggles with PTSD.
Phantom Effects has also been involved in many volunteer and charitable events like the Wish Foundation, Crime Prevention and Disaster Relief through the Red Cross. Giving back to our community is very important to us.

Getting in the Christmas Spirit Through Dance
For the past ten years Phantom Effects has looked forward to getting into the Christmas Spirit by donating our time and artistry to the Nutcracker performance by Cadance Academy; this show is held yearly at the Theatre Festival in Wolfville, NS. Through the years we have continuously challenged ourselves to elevate the characters and provide a new experience from the classic we all love.
Cobequid Educational Centre, Safe Grad Demonstration
After being involved in the grand slam success of CEC's performance of Shrek (Spring 2013), we jumped at the opportunity to give back to the students by creating a Safe Grad demonstration that would make a lasting impact. We teamed up with local Police and Firefighters to produce a horrific scene that would stress the importance of not drinking and driving. This demonstration was covered by CBC news due to it's no holds barred approach to students safety.
