What is the course about?

The course is designed to show you how to explore and create make-up effects for Film, Theatre and TV. You will use a range of products and techniques. You will carry out your own research and build a small portfolio of images that will provide a starting point to building your own design ideas.

Please note that acting classes by their very nature can involve exercises and the exploration of material that some students may find challenging.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Create bruising, black eyes, wounds, cuts, scars ageing, apply facial hair to create character looks.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

All levels.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

You will work in pairs to get the feel of applying the products to an artist/actor. There will be demonstrations, hand outs, one to one feedback, group discussion and practical work. Outside the class you will be asked to create a small ideas portfolio. This will be discussed in the first session.

As part of the course content, your tutor may record your image for initial and ongoing assessment purposes. You are entitled to decline to participate in the recording of your image.
