The DOP and the Make-up Artist

This week we were treated to a fantastic lesson with seasoned Director of Photography Franc Biffone. Students became more aware of the importance of good clean make-up and hair style. A camera was set up and everyone was able to view the HD monitors to first see our model without make-up, and then with make-up applied and hair styled. Lit the correct way, the students were able to see the difference that good make-up accomplishes.

It was a great learning curve for everyone. It was a fun day that went very quickly, with the students having their first real experience of doing 'Stand-by', and communicating with a DOP as a make-up artist would.
