FdA Film and TV Make Up
This course allows you to investigate and develop the necessary skills to become a make up artist for the film and television industries. You will develop technical, application and professional skills alongside creative and conceptual initiatives. Through a number of practical and theoretical assignments, you will gain an understanding of fashion/media as image and cultural product. Project work requires sourcing, research and development, and production that may be done on an individual basis or within a team, and will always have a set of required outcomes.
Visualisation skills in 2D underpin core make up studies and application, and explorations in 3D enhance an understanding of the body and its underlying structures that is particularly important in the production of prosthetic and special make up effects. You will be introduced to the classic theories of colour, light and form and you will extend this knowledge with the familiarisation of numerous special effects and make up techniques.
Your personal and professional development including communication, negotiation/ team working, networking and studentship skills are measured and assessed in conjunction with core subject skills, in the interests of an overall learning experience that is relevant and useful. You will be supported throughout this, in a teaching and learning environment that is ultimately focussed on your needs wherever possible; you will encouraged at all times to identify and develop your own working methodology and style against a backdrop of a professional establishment that is ever ready and waiting to be pushed, surprised and transcended.
