IDFLM 2800 Makeup, Hair & Prosthetics

You've got the right camera. Your lighting is perfect. The story is compelling. The crew is ready to go. But your actors look... bland. Whether it's a simple brush of makeup or an elaborate prosthetic mask, you need the right look to tell your story. This course teaches the basics of makeup design, hair styling and prosthetics. We will use makeup, latex and other tools to create compelling looks for film and video. If your film or photograph calls for fantasy, horror, crime or maybe just a touch of the dramatic, you will research how to make the right elements to enhance your visuals.
