About Us

JPM Productions, Inc. (JPM) opened its doors in 1979 to offer training and education for Emergency Medical Technicians in life-or-death situations. 

In the mid-1970s when Jay Peter Mitchell (Founder and CEO of JPM) was an EMT, he witnessed the lack of hands-on training being provided for emergency response agencies. Even when hands-on training was provided, the “victims” did not look like they had real injuries.

Having been “out in the trenches,” Pete certainly knew what a real injury looked like, and he was determined to create a makeup style that would reproduce the realism he had witnessed.  The result: JPM’s one-of-a-kind Special Trauma® Makeup Applications.

Special Trauma® Makeup vs. Moulage

Moulage (French: casting/moulding) is the art of applying mock injuries for the purpose of training Emergency Response Teams and other medical and military personnel. It is thought that by using Moulage, emergency personnel will become desensitized to the shock of trauma victims.

The problem with ordinary moulage is that it is just not realistic. Sometimes, the intended effect of poor makeup or appliance application is that the role player is not only not shocking, they can become laughable.

Pete Mitchell developed Special Trauma® Makeup Application so that role players would look like real victims, and their injuries would look like real injuries. Consider the following two photographs comparing a moulage victim with a Role Player who received a Special Trauma® Makeup Application.

Moulage - Bad Makeup

A typical moulage application where
makeup is applied, suggesting injuries.
However, there is very little realism
in this scene.
