On Dec. 22, Netflix debuted its first Hollywood blockbuster-style film, Bright—and opinions are divided.
But even the critics who slammed Bright can agree on one thing: The makeup is incredible. The film portrays a fantastical world filled with Orcs, elves, and faeries so aesthetically impressive that Bright could be up for an Oscar in the “best hair and makeup” category.
There’s just one problem. The makeup artists who brought director David Ayer’s vision to life may have been snubbed in the film itself. Studio ADI, a company that specializes in creating “special characters and character effects” for feature films in the X-Men, Spiderman and Alien franchises sent out an email titled “credit where credit is due” claiming that about 60 makeup artists were left out of Bright’s credits.
“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,” the email states. ”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.”
Quartz has reached out to Netflix for comment, and will update this story with any response. For now, here is the full list of people ADI claim were left out of Bright’s credits:
Asst. Shop Supervisor
Seaming/ Fabrication Supervisor
Seaming/ Finishing Dept.
Jon K. Miller
Jordan K. Morris

Vincent Van Dyke
