This is a continuation from My First Blog Post when I wrote about filming the trailers for Storm Warrior (TV Series) and Dream Finder (Feature Film).
A little teaser for you to wet your appetite!
Now I am going to write in this post about my experience in the photo studio for these projects.
To produce art work and character images to be released before full scale production starts the cast and some crew spent an evening at The Photography Studio, Mexborough. The make up team and I transformed the actors back into their characters from the trailer filming at Dalby Forest. The photographer was the very talented Alex De Luca who is also Storm Warriors Director.
In the make up room we used continuity photographs and make up notes taken from filming to ensure the make up on the actors was the same. However, we had to keep in mind that the make up application techniques had to be different from the film days because make up for film is different to photographic make up. We used a range of highlighting and shading techniques to get the actors camera ready. This accentuates and enhances their features as the camera flash can often make the face look flat. We also had to take into consideration the lighting too. This is so we knew which angle the light would hit the face and the positioning of shadows. Over the course of the evening we managed to get the entire cast through hair, make up and costume getting them ready for their close ups!
It was really nice to catch up with everyone, the cast and crew are a fantastic team to work with. The dedication to this project by everyone is incredible, many cast had travelled the length of the country for this shoot.
