Film makeup/sfx


 I am in search of a makeup / SFX artist to collaborate with us on our next short film, LightHouse.  My husband and I have made the transition from commercial production into films.  We just completed our first short, Creature Comforts, and enjoyed the process so much we are starting right away on our second.  This second short is much more ambitious, so we really need to find is a creative partner/s that we can collaborate with.  There is no creature work in this film, but there are 2 large fight scenes that will require blood and wound work.  There would also be some beauty work for some of the actors.

 Our shoot dates are late October, but as you know with all production things change.  We will be filming on our farm in Corbett, Oregon.

There will be a flat fee paid out for the shoot. This will be negotiated upfront with the artist. This fee will include prep, shoot days and the kit rental fee. If any special SFX materials are required specifically for our project – – we will also cover. We also include meals (on days of shoot), a copy of the film and credit. Most likely a mix of week days and weekends. 

Email- – and include (LightHouse makeup artist) in the subject.  It would be great if interested parties include examples of their blood and wound work. We are specifically looking for post fight  beaten to a pulp look.

Best, Alicia
