Theatre, film and television are highly visual practices. They all require the expert input of the designer to imagine and create their physical environments, to generate character and costume, and to organise the overall visual experience of the work.
A Make-Up/Prosthetics Designer works on feature films, television dramas, commercials, music videos, theatre, opera and dance performances. The job focuses on the performers and creating appropriate characters based on a given script using make-up, postiche, wigs or prosthetics. A Make-Up/Prosthetics Designer liaises with the director to discuss the interpretation of the script and any notable effects that may be required. They work in conjunction with the costume designer and hair/wig dresser to ensure that the visual statement is complete and convincing.
A portfolio submission is required for this programme.
