|The month after the Advanced Prosthetic course I went looking for some work to praticse the new tecniques that I had learnt during the lessons. I would like to understand also the differences between Italian's and American's way to work. I couldn't be just a tourist ! I was lucky and you can see what I did in the pictures below.|
|The sculpture above was done for the Make-up Trade Show in Pasadena in June 2005 (IMATS). James Lacey, a very nice and clever make-up artist who was also my teacher for one day at school, asked me if I was interested in helping him to develope his project. Could I answer "no" ? I assisted him during many steps of the job, from the lifecast to the transformation of it with plasticine.|
This was a special day for me, because I stayed on the set with Jeff Farley, a very clever make-up artist, specialized in special effects. I helped him to apply all the prosthetics on the actor's body, so we create this weird and funny devil.carachter for a tv shcalled "Dante's Inferno".
THE CINEMA MAKEUP SCHOOL IN LOS ANGELES
|In May - June 2005 I went to Los Angeles to attend a course in "Advanced Prosthetic make-up" at the Cinema Make-up School. It was a great experience where I could learn how to use foam lattex and sylicone gel for appliances. The results of my job is shown in the following pictures.|
