THE NEVER ENDING JOBS FOR A MAKEUP AND MAKEUP EFFECTS ARTIST.
Over the years other than taking afew trips to the US and talking to countless techs on the phone just getting in there an advancing my skills allowed me to cross over in many areas of the film industry. The more skills you have the more work you can attract in the quite times.
I did alot of display work outside the film industry and Hair Shows for companies for launches of new products. Creating something alittle different. Actually when I think about it they paid better than film sometimes.
In doing these jobs I had to cross over alot of areas, sculpting, mould making, fabrication, finishing, wigs, costume design etc. Very cool to complete a awesome piece from scratch. Thanks to the techs that worked alone side me aswell. Brad who was my business partner and amazing artist also for alot of these jobs.
Hope you enjoy a few interesting pics of some of the 'out of the square' creations. Kym
