Special Effects Trainee

  • Location: Swaffham
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I have worked on set along side Signature Pictures on Princes Trust supported course which was called get started with film. I had the opportunity to work as an assistant hair and make up artist. I enjoy creating the more gnarly and gorey prosthetics and effects. I would love to learn more about prosthetics eg. head prosthetic, body, hands etc.and how to best use make-up to create the desired looks.

In my spare time I work with a script writer and editor,I do the makeup for his productions. He has produced a mini series for you-tube, this has given me an insight into working in the industry. I am used working long hours in cramped and difficult locations, all part of the challenge! I would like to find a position as a trainee so I can develop my skills and progress in the industry.
