Advanced Television & Film Make-up

Advanced Television & Film Make-up

Take the skills you learned on the Delamar Casualty and Character course to the next level with our Advanced course.

The Advanced Television & Film Make-up course will broaden your knowledge of casualty techniques, give you new ways to lend depth to your character make-up skills, and start you on the path to mastery in these areas of expertise.

Before applying for this course, we ask that you have completed the following Delamar courses or can demonstrate equivalent experience:

What you will learn

Building on the skills taught in the Casualty and Character course, the 2 weeks of this intensive course explore further the building up of a character. Casualty skills are also developed — using a wide variety of products — and master classes from top industry experts ensure a thorough understanding of blood work, ageing techniques, and character work to a high standard.

Classes will revisit advanced ageing techniques using gelatine eye bags and also create larger skin aliments. Project work and practice in following the brief will help in combining all the techniques to produce the make-up result required.

Included are classes in understanding and following continuity, script and character breakdowns, understanding set etiquette, guidance on writing a CV and cover letter, speed tests and a lighting day with a professional cameraman with an HD camera and monitor.

The course fee includes use of a brush set and products included in our complete kit.

Where you will learn it

The light and airy classrooms of Delamar Academy are located within the world-famous Ealing Studios in West London. (You can learn more about Ealing Studios itself on our Get in touch page or on the Ealing Studios site itself.)

In our spacious classrooms, you will have your own personal workstation – including professional lighting and equipment. Ealing Studios is home to a number of other companies that form a real media community, with visual effects, production, editing, outside broadcast, and record companies all represented. There is also the Met Film School, which offers a first step in studio work experience for our own students when they work on graduate films.
