THE MOVIE MAKEUP METHOD

A first of its kind, The MMM is a 6 month, online program that is taught via live calls and videos.

 

Here’s how it all works:

  • We have a live call on a topic

  • You have one week to complete the task, film it and upload your video to VoiceThread

  • We’ll review the video in the beginning of each call (comments on your video on VoiceThread if you choose to learn in a group)

 

Please note: VoiceThread platform allows other students to view your work too. I promise you will find this very helpful! I strongly encourage my students to get to know each other, even if you chose to do the private program with me. WE are a community, and with the support from each other we are better and stronger.

Ulla is the first makeup artist to become a certified VoiceThread educator. VoiceThread is an innovative online learning platform used by over 40 of 100 top universities including Penn State, Stanford and Loyola University.

Hmmm. Sounds good, but...

 

What exactly do I learn in the MMM?

MODULE ONE (4 WEEKS)

We start by figuring out where you are at on your journey. Yes, you have to be a makeup artist to even attend The MMM, but we all start in different places and I want to be able to help you by meeting you where you currently are. Even in group program you’ll find that The MMM is very personalized learning.

 

We want to figure out, TOGETHER, where you stand regards to skincare, tools, makeup products and techniques.

 

Next we move on to basic makeup for TV & film

  • How to create a simple daytime look

 

That might sound super basic, and that "list" looks awfully short,  but you’ll be surprised how different this is from your everyday makeup, and how much thought will go into creating something so simple.

 

From here we switch gears a bit and learn about corrective makeup.

 

As the name suggests, you will be creating several different looks that will correct something. That doesn’t always mean there is something “wrong” with the face you are working with, it might be that the lighting used is creating discoloration, distorting the shape or it could be something as easy as covering a pimple.

 

No matter what, you will be immersed in anatomy and color theory in this module.

MODULE TWO (10 WEEKS)

This is where we move on to more theoretical studies of TV and film makeup. Among other things, you will learn

 

  • How to break down a script (and what that means)

  • How to create looks from that break down

  • How to work in conjunction with directors, producers, wardrobe designers and actors while creating looks for the project

We will also dive deep into:

 

  • Character creation and evolvement

  • History

  • Chemistry (don’t worry, this is more about occupational safety than memorizing chemical names and formulas)

  • Budgeting

  • Continuity

  • Set etiquette

MODULE THREE (10 WEEKS)

You will be submerged into the world of 3D makeup and career building.

Think:

  • Small 3D looks (scars, small injuries, illness)

  • Facial hairpieces (mustache, beard, sideburns)

  • Pre-made prosthetic pieces (application, removal, maintenance)

 

We will also talk about your career and how to go about it on this module.

 

  • How to write your resume when you don’t have any film experience yet

  • How to set up your website

  • How to contact industry insiders, and also WHO to contact

 

The last 3-4 weeks of the program will be spent pulling together everything you have learned.

 

  • You will get a script (everyone will get their own, no 2 students will get the same script)

  • You will break down said script

  • You will create the looks for each character and decide how these looks evolve or change throughout filming

  • You will create a budget

  • You will create a calendar for additionals needed days

  • You will do a camera test

  • You will create a continuity book

 

During the final phases you will work with other students, even if you chose to work privately with me, and/ or with other industry professionals currently working in the film industry.

As much as I would love to just take your money, honey, I can't.

I stand behind ANY of my programs or classes 100%, but they're not for everyone. I want to know that you're fully committed not only to my program but to life on a set. It's not for the faint of heart. That's why I need you to calm down and fill out the application.

After I review your application, my team and I will decide if you are a good fit for this program. Whatever the decision is, we will be in touch! You will either get an invitation to an interview, or I will recommend another program for you.

 

 

I really, really appreciate you even considering my program and I hope I get to work with you VERY SOON!

xoxo,
