Typically January and even the first quarter of the year is a quiet time in the industry. The film industry kicks off in spring, with summer being the crazy busy season! However… as you might come to imagine, the Delamar Family have been doing well and we couldn’t be more excited for the rest of 2018.
Film & TV:

Here you can see Brian with Joanna Masiewicz, Nadja Scalzi and Mollie Merrifield who graduated last summer on the 1 Cert HE Professional Make-up Design Course and Tytti Valerie who graduated from Advanced Prosthetics several weeks ago! Yes you read that correctly. These girls (and Brian) are all loving it. Well done team Delamar!
