The problems continue for Netflix’s first attempt at a big Hollywood blockbuster. Bright, the fantasy cop-thriller starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, premiered on Netflix and was slammed by most critics. A few critics even called it the worst film of 2017.
But now the film has bigger fish to fry. The makeup artists who worked hard to make David Ayer’s vision come to life were not listed in the credits.
Studio ADI, a company that specializes in creating “special characters and character effects” for feature films, sent out an email titled “credit where credit is due.” In the email, they claim that about 60 makeup artists were left out of Bright’s credits.
“Bright is a big Special Makeup film with many talented people contributing to its success. ADI had one of our largest crews in recent memory, about 60 amazing artists and technicians creating around 50 hero makeups and another 85 background masks. We hope you’ll tune in to Netflix to support the craft! On rare occasion unintentional credit omissions are made. When you see those never-ending lists of crew in the credits of a movie like Bright you can be guaranteed that mistakes are going to be made.
That’s what happened to us. Our entire crew was left out of the credits. We’re having the necessary conversations about getting it rectified (it’s streaming, right? seems like a do-able fix) but until we get a resolution, we thought we’d post the complete list of the incredible folks who worked on ADI’s crew.”
Hopefully Netflix can correct the problem soon. I’m not sure how you forget 60 people, but mistakes happen? I guess? Anyway, you can view the names of the talented artists who were left out below…
