Zombie Makeup Test 2

posted by Posted in Pre-Production    2 Comments    Tags: , ,

The SLF team conducted our second makeup test for Zombie Man. We turn our actors into zombies and achieve a film ready look for each of them.

We conducted another makeup test to perfect our zombie look, workflow and give the actors a chance to experience the process. There is something special that happens when an actor slips into character and nothing eases that process more than wardrobe. Putting on the makeup and rehearsing in character makes the whole experience come to life.

One of the greatest things about making movies in San Diego is the opportunity to meet other filmmakers. We invited our friends Dean and Nina Gates to take part in our makeup test. Dean and Nina both had a long career in both beauty and special fx makeup. Look them up on IMDB and you’ll see why I jumped at the chance to get them involved.

Without further delay, here are some pics from the night.
