Working at speed proficiency on set
Recently on a big commercial beauty shoot I pondered how time for professional make up artists has diminished over the years on set as technologies and reliance on post production has overtaken professional skills. Progression of technology now versus artistry? Hours became minutes.
As production companies continue to cut the amount of time make up artists get to deliver their looks, it is vital that the next generation of training artists get to understand the value to working at speed with proficiency.
I am now traning my students to work to strict deadlines and time deliveries so that on set they are able to beat he clock and still deliver high technical standards. This is a vital development in professional make up artistry education.
