Spectacular make-up and dramatic special effects can transform a production. Recent graduates have gone on to work with leading prosthetics companies, on films such as Les Miserables, and at top UK studios Pinewood and Shepperton.
Make-Up for Media and Performance gives you the skills needed to play a key creative role in performance, fashion, film or television. The make-up artist is an important member of any production team and you’ll work with students studying acting, film production, costume and fashion to create ‘live’ collaborative projects.
Diverse skills for a wide range of creative industries
On this course you’ll learn a diverse range of make-up skills. You’ll study make-up and hair design for drama, ballet, opera and music. A different perspective will give the skills for fashion and photography shoots. You’ll also look at creating special effects and prosthetic make-up for film and television.
In short, you’ll develop skills that are a real asset to a wide range of performance industries, from theatre to TV, from the music business to the world of fashion and film.
