Kris Kobzina was a finalist on Face Off's fourth season.
Where are you now?
Well, I'm currently teaching a prosthetics class at cinema make up school, while working on a TV pilot and a film that will be released this fall, called Bounty Killer.
What's one thing about being on Face Off that a viewer might not realize?
They might not realize that all of the contestants get cut off from the world with no contact with friends or family. That made it a little tougher for me, because I have a wife and two kids and live 30 miles away from the location we stayed at.
What's your favorite memory from your time on the show?
Having everybody back for the finale. Lots of laughs!
What's one thing you learned working on Face Off that you've carried forward into your makeup work?
Having a clear thought and being able to execute it fast and precise. The show has really opened doors inside me as an artist.
What's something you would have done differently, looking back now?
Well, I would have tried to relax a bit more at the beginning of the show so I could have gotten into my zone earlier on.
Whose work, either in your season or in a subsequent season you've seen, was your favorite?
Well, I like a lot of the artists' work throughout all of the seasons. But if I have to pick one, it's Conor from season 1: Good sculpts and well-executed applications.

The artists must create beautiful faeries, born out of a post-apocalyptic disaster.
