I often get messages asking for tips on how to start in the industry, what to get for a kit when you're a trainee and how to read a call sheet. It is quite scary to start and go out in the film world after make-up school.
This course is a way to make it easier for anyone in this situation. It's online, accessible from anywhere as long as you have an Internet access.
On the 10th of March, there's a follow-up Q&A where you can ask questions Live. It's super easy to join in, even for people who don't like tech.
There are worksheets to help you work through the exercises & keep you on track day-to-day.
You get free upgrades to the course and access to the quarterly Q&A..
The course covers:
Years ago, before even moving to London, I have been invited once to be part of a panel at IMATS to answer make-up students their question about starting in film. I was out of Make-up school for a few years and my "right-out-of-the-trenches" experience was appealing in the mix of panelists.
Since I also have been teaching this in school and via private mentoring, with people approaching me via social media.
It feels like the logical thing to start there. It will be most beneficial for make-up trainees but similar departments will find gems as well. I will speak mostly about the UK as it’s my experience.
Back to the IMATS...
You could feel the excitement and fears all tangled up in the audience eyes.
Being that close to start your dream career is exhilarating but when the rubber hits the road, it's a big scary world that opens: FREELANCING. All of a sudden, you feel tiny, at the beginning of a long long road.
But it doesn't need to be.
A bit of guidance is all you need to start your career better prepared, with more confidence and more focus on what matters. Knowledge is power and often helps you save money.
