First shoot day!

It was a nice, easy first day for me on Monday, in a low-light room with basic make-up looks for one young woman and two young men.

I was put into a small cubby hole with flickering lights and a tiny shelf on which to put the make-up (on top of a nice, clean towel of my own of course). It was fun, and I figure I’m bound to work in worse places as build my portfolio ;-) I got to see two young ladies that I met at the make-up rehearsal and then I got to meet the three young men which play the leads across from the women. I can’t remember all their names but I’ll make a note of them when we next shoot and let you know who they are!

Our next shoot days are outside, with the young ladies, so more concentration needed for those looks ;-) Although we had a rehearsal day for their make-up I’ve had a word with Damian and decided to modify (read: change completely) the looks we tried. It was, after all, only a practice day to see what worked and what didn’t so mods are to be expected. We all want the characters to be realistic and suit the looks we give them, so these mods are a good thing!

As soon as Damian allows me to put up photos from on set then I’ll show you what we’re up to, so stay tuned for more…
